Keep up with recent Park and Friends' happenings.
Come to the Friends Picnic June 2
Our annual member and volunteer appreciation picnic this year will be on Saturday June 2 at noon, rain or shine, after the trail workday. The picnic is open to all trail workers and members of the Friends of Ridley Creek State Park and will include the annual election for Friends officers. If you are not yet a dues-paying member, you are encouraged to come and join on the spot!
Meet us at Pavilion 8, which is a sheltered site off Sandy Flash Drive at the top of the hill, next to the horse farm building. The picnic treats are compliments of the Friends: hamburgers, hot dogs, potato salad, coleslaw, beverages, and other fare. People are welcome to bring a dessert or other dish to share.
The annual meeting will include officer elections. Current members of the Friends of
Ridley Creek State Park and newly signed up members will be able to vote. The President and Vice-President positions (currently held by Jack Miller and Joan Nikelsky) will be up for re-election. We have also just found a new Treasurer - member Dave Case – and he will be on the ballot also.
Please RSVP for the picnic so we can plan the food. E-mail email@example.com or call Joan at 610-352-5685 by Wednesday, May 30, if you can. We hope to see you there!
