Great morning in Grapevine, Texas


Lake Grapevine, Grapevine, Texas

Stop 2 of the VolunTOUR

Saturday morning we met up with the good people of Grapevine, Texas and employees of Travelocity for a morning clean up at Meadowmere Park. Grapevine Lake is beautiful, and we wondered if there was any work that needed to be done! But, we quickly learned that part of the lake shore had been untouched for years and it was the task of the day to clear brush, remove debris and make the site usable again. We have yet to encounter a more enthusiastic group of volunteers...these people were ready to get to work! And it was wonderful to see parents with their children, working side by side. And if one day wasn't enough, they are coming back for more on Tuesday!

The employees of the City of Grapevine were amazing as well, and a special thanks goes out to Joe, Tim and Mary Jo. Our visit couldn't have been any better. Also, thank you to Central Market for providing water and snacks. And of course, a big thank you to Travelocity! You guys are awesome!


The day wasn't without a few surprises...these two girls found a snake hiding in the grass! YIKES!

Look at all those wonderful kids :)
Makes me happy to see that someone still cares and want to put some hard work and effort into doing some changes.

We love our lake. Thanks for taking part in cleaning it up. I live right by the park, and it is great that people are helping out to do what they can to make it better. I wish there were more swimming areas personally, but that is me.

THanks for helping out our little lake.
