Friends of Jefferson Park meeting tomorrow

08/27/2006 4:57 PM by

Friends of Jefferson Park will meet at 6pm on Monday at 2018 Princess Anne Avenue, followed by a cookout in the Park. Please bring a covered dish to share–the FOJP will provide drinks, grill, meat, bread, condiments, and paper products.

Lt. Jack King of the Police Department and Larry Miller, Tariq Waajid, and Emanuel Adediran from the Department of Parks, Recreation and Community Facilities plan to be in attendance. I am not sure if there will be a representative from the Department of Public Works present.

There will be information available on the Block Captain Program; 100 NEW Trees for Union Hill; and the Union Hill Civic Association (Their next meeting is 9/6, 7pm, 711 N 23rd); and other Community Information.
