SAVE BROOKLYN PARK SUMMER PROGRAM UPDATE! MORE PUBLIC ACTION NEEDED

The City Parks and Recreation representatives were not supportive in helping us find solutions to save our “Summer Free for All” program. Last night’s meeting proofs that more action is needed as they provided very little information and unsatisfactory answers.

HERE ARE THE NEXT ACTIONS NEEDED!!

Attend the Public Budget Hearing at Mt Scott Community Center, APRIL 18, 6:30PM.

RED ALERT! PUBLIC ACTION NEEDED NOW TO SAVE BROOKLYN PARK SUMMER PROGRAM!

Dear Neighbors,

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.
