Newly Wed @ NWP

Anthony Saint-Preux and Clint'a Johnson     

Ned Wolf Park hosted its first wedding in August as Clint'a and Anthony declared their vows before friends and family in the newly updated central terrace.  [Looks like our new wall served as a perfect perch for a photographer taking intimate images of the nuptuals.

Afterward, the photographers took some pictures of the wedding party including the bride's attendants wearing coral and groomsmen in black suits.  Then on to some special shots of just the newlyweds.  Only difficulty for the beaming bride was walking through the lawn with her ultra-high black stiletto heels as the couple moved from being framed by the shed doors........... the a spot behind the planted island bed where a collection of late summer blooming flowers helped show off the happy couple.   Overcast skies did not dampen the warm spirit of this joyous occasion. We sure hope Clint'a & Anthony will keep visiting & let the beauty of our gardens remind them of this memorable milestone....for them and for Ned Wolf Park.

More donor bricks installed

Just a few weeks ago, another 16 bricks were added to the corners of the brick insert at Ned Wolf Park's central terrace.  Brick donor Laurel Harrish recently brought her two daughters to see the brick which she had engraved for them as a lasting marker of their connection to their beloved first home in Mt. Airy.    It's no accident that this is such an appealing photograph.  Check out this professional local photographer's website: 

You, too, can commemorate a loved one, publicly say thank you to someone in the community, or just support the Friends of Ned Wolf Park's efforts to improve the park for the community by donating $100 for a personally inscribed brick.  Pick up one of the brochure/order forms in the park's information boxes.  Or you can scroll back through past posts to find a printable copy of our order form.  And, you can even pay via Paypal using the link on the righthand margins of this blog.
