Dear Oakland Parks Supporter:
We are excited to invite you to our Annual Meeting on Saturday, September 9 at the new Charles Porter / Golden Gate recreation center. At this meeting, we will introduce you to the important Oakland officials in charge of our parks and park facilities, and offer all those interested in volunteering for parks a rare opportunity to share your own volunteer experiences and learn from each other how you can be more effective in your support of our parks.
Our program will include speakers from the City of Oakland’s Public Works and Parks, Recreation and Youth Development departments, as well as a short presentation reviewing the Parks Foundation’s successes and challenges over the past fiscal year.
Following our speakers, we will break into groups to discuss the issues and challenges around working to improve Oakland’s parks. Finally, we’ll end the morning with our annual awards to a deserving park steward and recreation center director, and the presentation of our new Oakland Parks and Recreation Foundation board officers.
Note: Coffee and breakfast rolls will be served.
Place: Golden Gate Recreation Center Community Room
Address: 1075 62nd Street
Ample street parking is available.
We hope to see you there!
