July 31, 2013 was a fun evening for the Cowboy Pledge volunteers who met at the Freedom Shrine located at 700 West, 4500 South Taylorsville, Utah. The Freedom Shrine, bordered by the Jordan River Parkway on the east, is a popular place for Joggers and others to stop and rest. The Shrine includes an impressive United States Flag and several plaques that are replicas of historical documents. The shrine also has several wood and cement park benches for visitors use.
Cowboy Pledge invited volunteers from their apartment communities to do some maintenance and repairs on the Freedom Shrine and to help clean up a section of the Jordan River Parkway that runs in front of the Freedom Shrine.
Cowboy Pledge provided lumber, stain and tools and equipment to make repairs to some of the benches and put two coats of stain on all of the wood surfaces. Several of the volunteers eagerly joined in the staining process and others helped pick up trash and clean up the parkway.
Volunteers included residents and members of the management team from Bridgeside Apartments and they were joined by volunteers from Liberty Metro Apartments, located in downtown Salt Lake City, Utah and the staff from Cowboy Pledge.
When the work was completed, the volunteers enjoyed cookies and cold soft drinks provided by
Cowboy Properties in support of Cowboy Pledge. A drawing for prizes was provided by Cowboy Pledge and everyone had fun seeing who would win.
Cowboy Pledge thanks each of the volunteers for their help and encourages everyone to stop by and enjoy the Freedom Shrine and the surrounding area
