Teddy Bear Clinic Hosted by Medical Center Alliance

The Medical Center Alliance is hosting its first annual Teddy Bear clinic on November 15 for those teddy’s, dolls, transformers or other best friends that need some professional medical care.

The event will take place at the new hospital that is being built on the northeast corner of I-35 and N. Tarrant Parkway in Fort Worth within the Emergency Room. The hospital tells says the “Nurses, therapists, and the rest of the teddy-specialty team will set up a special hospital clinic for toys in a special room, just off of our ER.” The event is a first come registered event for parents, children and of course their “patient”.

Child life specialists recommend teddy bear clinics as a way to familiarize children with a healthcare environment in a friendly, non-threatening way. The experience can reduce anxiety later if a loved one is hospitalized, or if they need special care themselves.

The hospital is still under construction, but the Emergency Room is open. The new hospital expects to open in February.

Dear VOWS Residents,

We would like to invite our Residents to participate again this year, in the City of Fort Worth’s Neighborhood Litter Stomp Event on Saturday, October 25th to help keep The Villages of Woodland Springs neighborhood clean and beautiful.

Neighborhood Cleanup Areas:    We will again focus our efforts on cleanup within the community green spaces, surrounding perimeter roads, and Timberland Blvd, East of Alta Vista. (By comparison, VOWS is amongst the cleanest neighborhoods in the City of Fort Worth.  However, the green spaces, surrounding perimeter streets, and the area along Timberland Blvd, across from the Kroger Shopping Center could always use a little additional assistance).

Cleanup items and bagged trash from these locations may be placed in the dumpster located at the Timberland Amenity Center parking lot, or left for our staff to pick up in predetermined drop off areas within the community.

Again this year, the first 30 participants will receive a Fort Worth Neighborhood Litter Stomp t-shirt.
The Homeowners Association will provide trash bags and gloves to our VOWS volunteers.

Please register with the VOWS onsite management office at 817.741.1719 or email Robin atrobin.willits@fsresidential.com for participation in the VOWS – Neighborhood Litter Stomp Event.
