(11)

MOTTO: "Working Together for the Greater Good".
501 (C) 3 Nonprofit Organization. Who is FRI? FRI is a grassroot organization dedicated to the complete restoration of the White Rock Hills community. Launched in 1998 as a 501(c)3 nonprofit, FRI aggressively addresses crime, safety, business degeneration, urban blight and failing schools by building alliances with law enforcement and social service agencies to empower and strengthen our community. And now FRI has launched its ambitious Economic Development strategy. We are nurturing a vision of an urban village, a place of safety and beauty where people want to live and raise their families. Our vision is to create a place in our city with a unique identity and character; a place with tree lined streets with sidewalks and bustling small retail and commerce. We want to create a stable community that is both ethnically and economically diverse with an engaged faith community dedicated to serving not only their congregation but the community in which they are located.

Fellow Honor Our Heroes Members,

Last night was our first official “Light Up” Downtown Dallas event for International Firefighters’ Day with Dallas in red to Honor Our Heroes in Fire Rescue. I wanted to share a snapshot of what it looked like—pretty neat if you ask me. We also had some mention on Channel 11 and Channel 8 (hat tip: Gary Griffith). Please share/spread the word and note we will be all blue on May 15th for the Police.

GOOD NEWS. The City of Dallas no longer requires appointments for vaccinations at The Potter’s House Vaccination Hub site. Residents can still register in advance to make the vaccination process quicker, but appointments are no longer necessary. To save time at either The Potter’s House or Fair Park register at www.dallascountycovid.org or call 1-855-IMMUNE9 (855-466-8639) between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m.

Dallas Fire-Rescue and the Visiting Nurse Association of Texas are also providing in-home vaccinations for our homebound residents. Anyone in need of an in-home vaccination can email [email protected] to schedule an appointment.

Freedom Code Quilt - Sunday, March 3 at 2 pm According to oral legend, African American slaves used codes, symbols, and secret messages to navigate the Underground Railroad to freedom. Quilt codes were said to be interpreted through patterns of secret codes, words, and signs that passed on messages. These and other clandestine methods aided escaping slaves, and those who were helping them in this very dangerous journey. Participants in the workshop will make one quilt block during the workshop. All supplies will be provided. Presented by artist VET at the White Rock Hills Branch Library 9150 Ferguson Rd at 2 pm. “Cultural artists for this event are sponsored by the Community Artists Program (CAP), a program of the City of Dallas, Office of Cultural Affairs”
