Otter Creek Park Closing!!!

Sorry, I am posting this as a reference. A day late and a dollar short. If anyone has information or ideas on where we can move the Picnic and Campout, please let us know!!!

from Ed Needham:

It has been in the new lately that because of budget shortfalls, the City of Louisville will be closing Otter Creek park sometime in January. As many of you are aware, this is where we have had the past few FOSSILS/LAGERS Picnic/Campouts. If Otter Creek Closes, we will have to find somewhere else for this event. There is a meeting to discuss the closing and brainstorm ideas to keep it open here:
Event: Meeting at Otter Creek Park Pavilion
"To discuss the Otter Creek Park issue and show support."
Host: Save Otter Creek Park
Start Time: Sunday, December 7 at 2:00pm
End Time: Sunday, December 7 at 3:00pm
Where: Park Pavilion Third Left from Park entrance.
To see more details and RSVP, follow the link below:
This is not a FOSSILS meeting, but rather a community support meeting that FOSSILS members might be interested in attending.
