News & Events

Thanks to the Mount Pleasant Baptist Church Missions Conference!

This past weekend, Crispus Attucks Park was a grateful beneficiary of the Mount Pleasant Baptist Church Missions Conference.  Youth attending the Missions Conference volunteered their Saturday afternoon to help maintain the park.  They focused on two main projects: painting benches and planting bulbs

Park workday 9-20, planting

The workday was a huge success! Over the course of the afternoon, three benches were prepped and painted, and over 300 bulbs were planted. Huge thanks to the Missions Conference!

If maintaining the park sounds like fun, please consider volunteering at the next Fall Workday! We’ll build on this work of the Youth Workday and tackle important projects before we head into winter.  Pruning trees and bushes, removing old posts, mulching flowerbeds, planting bulbs, and more.  There will be appropriate projects for interested volunteers of all ages.  Spend a morning to maintain and beautify the neighborhood!

Thank you Bloomingdale!

We are pleased to announce that this year’s Community Day and Yard Sale featuring the Taste of Bloomingdale was an enormous success!  Hundreds of area residents spent part of their Saturday browsing the yard sale, tasting food from area restaurants, learning about local community organizations, and listening to great music, all with the purpose of supporting the park. And it worked! Together, we raised enough funds to cover around half of Crispus Attucks Park’s operating budget for the entire year.

Thank you to everyone who participated—yard sale vendors, shoppers, non-profits, and especially our local businesses and restaurants who donated precious time and resources to help maintain the unique community resource that is Crispus Attucks Park.

And thank you to everyone who took time out of their Saturday to support Crispus Attucks Park. We hope everyone who came enjoyed the beautiful weather and had a wonderful time!

These restaurants and businesses (in no particular order) supported this year’s event. Please make it a point to thank and show your support for them!
