UPDATE - The bench and plaque will not be in place on April 27th but the renaming ceremony by the city will still be held. TShirts are being sold. Please contact me with quantity and size if interested.

The Bench (and hopefully the plaque as well) will be in place soon at what is currently named the Farmers Branch Skate Park in memory of our Shelby and; the dedication date will be Saturday, April 27th at 6 pm.

In addition to the bench dedication, on April 2nd, the City of Farmers Branch voted and approved renaming the skate park to Phillip Shelby Hemstock Skate Park and yes, for those who did not know, his first name is actually Phillip).

The renaming was initiated by Mayor Dye during the March city council meeting after the bench and plaque approval. The Mayor made an amazing and appreciated gesture and motioned to rename the skate park. The renaming was approved during the April 2nd city council meeting.

The skate park is not only being renamed because of Shelby being handsome, clever, funny, smart, photogenic, talented, while also having the BEST personality; although ALL of these things are true. The renaming is due more for all of his hard work advocating for the skate park during the planning and design stages, him providing lessons on a contract basis at the skate park, him hosting multiple events and competitions at the skate park, and his overall PASSION for both skating and for The City of Farmers Branch.

Again, The city's renaming ceremony is scheduled for Saturday, April 27th at 6 pm and I have scheduled the bench dedication for the same date and time as the city's event so both will be on Saturday, April 27th at 6 pm.

His father David (Pops) and I are wanting to use the City's renaming ceremony/Family's Bench Unveiling as an opportunity to get everyone together in Shelbys honor; on Saturday, April 27th at 6 pm at the Skate Park. I am hoping to get everyone to come together and share stories, laughs and tears and remember Shelby as the most perfect Shelby he was, is and always will be.

We, the family, will give out Goody Bags while supplies last and have TShirts available for purchase (more info on that will be posted in a week or so).

Hot Dogs and Drinks will be provided by the City. For more info on the renaming ceremony being done by the City of Farmers Branch please see event link below and please RSVP if able but not required to attend the City's Event.

Again,  I know how much we all love Shelby and how much we are all missing him.  I think the bench and plaque will be a beautiful tribute to Shelby.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions, ideas, etc. and THANK YOU!

Miss you son xoxo

Update #19

Wanted to get an update to everyone on the status of the bench and plaque. I haven't been on Facebook much since the name change event and I apologize for that. I am still working on processing and dealing with the reality that our Shelby is no longer with us.
Thursday the concrete was poured and the plaque was placed. The bench will go in today if the concrete is dry. It will be complete by Sunday if the weather cooperates. I will post an update once I confirm the rec has completed. (Pics from today attached).
Also once the rec has framed the new sign it will be posted displaying the new name of the skatepark - The "Phillip Shelby Hemstock Skatepark". I am waiting for the rec to confirm what date they expect to have it up - once I know I will post another update.
All of the T shirts that were purchased have been mailed so if you don't receive it by Wed, May 22nd please let me know.
HiGuyz shirts with Shelby's designs will be available for purchase very soon and Ill post info next week. I am only selling them because I know people want them and I need to cover the costs to have them made. I wish I could give them away like he did LOL but his intention WAS to sell them, he just always wound up giving more away then he actually sold.
I am really missing him and I know everyone else is too - thanks to everyone who helped with the cost of the plaque and bench. I appreciate the help and the support to get this done for Shelby. Unfortunately nothing can bring him back to me/us - I will do everything I can to honor him every second of every day and just try to keep pushing through until I see him again.

Update #18

Thank you everyone for your help getting this done for Shelby. The bench and plaque will be in place soon and I expect it to be ready for use the beginning of June (due to the construction at the rec center),
I have been working on protecting Higuyz for Shelby and will be printing his designs on shirts, decks and stickers soon that will be for sale. I will be putting money aside for future events to be done in Shelby's honor.
The other guys that are a part of HIguyz are on board and will be doing some new designs that will be sold as well.
Hoping to start an annual skate competition at the PSH Skatepark and also continuing Holiday Taint at Guapo if Guapo allows.
For those that paid for PSH Skatepark shirts and haven't received yet - I will be reaching out soon.
Again, thank you and I will continue to update as I have information.

Update #1

I am having to make some changes and feedback is appreciated. The FB Rec can not place the tree next to the bench like I originally wanted. They are suggesting a half bench and 2 trees placed inbetween the dog park (coming in June) and the skatepark. I am thinking I will do that AND the full bench which increases the cost. I am raising the goal to the new price but let me know if I am going over board. Thank you.
