For nearly forty years, Craig Montag has acted as coordinator, “camp counselor”, stickball coach, quizmaster, and all-around great guy to dozens of Brooklyn neighborhood kids all summer at Brooklyn Park. That’s right, 40 YEARS!
Portland Parks & Recreation is making BIG CUTS to the summer programs and Brooklyn Park is one of them. In the past, Brooklyn residents have always “stepped up to the plate.” If we as a neighborhood, do not act now, we will lose this program.
PLEASE DO WHATEVER YOU CAN TO HELP US SAVE THIS INVALUABLE PROGRAM!
Here’s what you can do!
Email, write, or call the following city officials and tell them what this program means to this community and to our kids. This may be our only chance, so act now.
