OWL Day a New Way on Sept. 12, 2020

OWLA has an awesome event planned to celebrate OWL Day this year! Check out the details on the “Annual Picnic” tab of OldWestLawrence.net for details and suggestions.

Needless to say, it is not a picnic. It will be an organic event that neighbors can adapt to their own pandemic comfort level, and it will occur on Saturday, Sept. 12, starting about 5 pm. OWLA encourages everyone to show pride in OWL by doing something outdoors on your property that you enjoy. Or, you can simply take a walk to experience the neighborhood, masked and socially distanced of course.

Included under the Picnic tab is a downloadable OWL coloring page for kids (or adults) to color and display somewhere on your property for a scavenger hunt that evening.

Membership Meeting, Saturday, February 1; plus OWL Day at the Watkins

Please consider sticking around after the OWLA meeting for a behind-the-scenes tour of the Watkins Museum, which includes visiting the attic space and seeing the famous bathtub of J. B. Watkins. Members will also receive OWL architecture coloring pages to take home to the children in their lives, and they will get a chance to interact with some documents related to the OWL neighborhood. Tour and activities will last for 45 minutes to an hour.
