We have been invited to the SunCoast BBQ- Bluegrass Bash on the Venice Fair Grounds (next to the airport) on April 19th. There will be thousands of people present. We can not sell anything or ask for
donations but we can pass out information about parks and your chapter. Let me know if you would like to share a booth with FOSCP - there will be lots of other non-profits at the event.
Please stop in at Macy’s and make a donation to the Friends of Potter Park, Macy’s is matching every dollar donated in the month of March.
Tour De Parks is on the 23rd — you can go to our or the Friends of the Legacy Trail web-site to find out more info.
Also, on March 17 the Sertoma Club of Venice will be at the gun range to help collect gun casings for FOSCP on the 17th from 3PM to dark — join us if you have time/interest.
On March 22 we will be at Caspersen Beach for the Great American
Clean-up from 8 to noon. Again, join in if you have time/interest.
On March 26 from 5-7PM at the Nokomis Community Center (FOSCP office) there will be a public meeting on the Blackburn Point Park construction project.
We presently have over 2 dozen recognition (memorial) projects which does not include the new opportunities at North Jetty Park and Siesta Beach. Thanks to Ed Wolfenbarger, George Tatge and all the others that helped install a bench/plaque this past week.
All for now — have a great week…Next FOSCP Board of Director’s
meeting is on the 27th at 4:30 at Twin Lakes. Yep, you guessed it - join in if you have time/interest. :-) TR
Tell your friends!People for Trees will present their informative, interactive “Florida-friendly Trees & Plants” program on Saturday, March 1, beginning at 11AM at the Morgan Family Center, a beautiful community center located at 6207 W. Price Blvd. in North Port.In just one hour, we’ll tell you the “secrets” of how you can easily and painlessly transform your boring, grass lawn into a thriving, water-conserving, no-fertilizing-needed, low-maintenance Florida-friendly yard! One that you could actually enjoy (instead of just having to mow!).Our slideshow features yards and places from right here in North Port that have embraced the Florida-friendly concept as well as the trees and plants of Florida. We’ll provide a handout with our complete tree and plant list, and have a Q&A period.Ten native trees will be given away as door prizes. FREE!Our regular People for Trees meeting will immediately follow the program. All are welcome to stay and find out what we are doing and what can be done to protect and maintain our native tree canopy. If you can’t make it, pass along this email to someone who may! Thanks and hope to see you Saturday.Alice White
