I Love My Park Day


Overall view was the day was successful but we need to start earlier to plan. With Governor Cuomo living in Mt. Kisco being that this is the second year he visited the park, we should consider he may visit use again. Thus two schedules would be advantageous.


Each member contributed suggestions to improve on next year’s Our Love My Park Day. See attached file for a summary.

Logo Contest:


Walt Daniels would like the file as an Adobe file so he can use it online.


Janice Turner
