We Texans love our porches. A porch is where we take our coffee to start our day and where we take our cocktail or ice tea at the end of the day. A porch is where we rock our babies, where lovers swing, where children play jacks or lie on their bellies and read books and it’s where we meet our neighbors.
The Denton Drilling Awareness Group (DAG) is inviting Denton neighbors to a porch party to celebrate the successful completion of the Frack Free Denton petition campaign. The next step of the campaign is Get Out the Vote. But first DAG wants to say thank you, neighbor.
Sunday, May 4th
1pm – 4pm
805 Ector Street
Cathy McMullen, DAG president, has offered the spacious, cool porch of her 100 year old farm house. Bring your families and neighbors and meet the DAG board members, Cathy, Adam, Rhonda, Ed and Carol, your neighbors.
This will be your last opportunity to sign the petition before the signatures are turned over to the city. A notary will be there to notarize petitions so circulators please bring your petitions and turn them in. Hopefully, the initiative to ban fracking in the City of Denton will go before the voters in November.
At the party:
- DAG will raffle off Frack Free Denton t-shirts.
- There will be music,
- Giant bubbles,
- Iced tea
- And everyone will eat hotdogs cooked on the smoker (vegan too).
Come to this beautiful outdoor living room and celebrate with DAG and your Denton neighbors.
Neighbors working with neighbors will beat back this fracking threat, make new friends and have a safer, healthier, more prosperous city.

Industry can spend a lot of money to try and sway voters to their crooked ways of business but they can never replicate the true interaction that occurs when neighbors and friends in a community talk and bond over a common goal of self preservation. The porch is our neutral territory to celebrate, plan, and express appreciation for all we have achieved. Come on over and let’s have a glass of iced tea and talk about it.
