On the agenda so far is the name change decision. At our October meeting, the group voted to change the name of South Shore Park Watch to better reflect the comprehensive mission of our organization. Suggestions for a new name included:
Friends of South Shore Park
South Shore Park Friends
If you have another suggestion for the new name, please email back your idea or share that idea at the Feb. 10th meeting. We will vote on the new name at that meeting.
The executive committee (Chad, Cary, Katie W., Jane) need your ideas for the upcoming year’s agenda. Please email any ideas you have for monthly meeting programming, events, or issues that the group should be addressing over 2015. We will also brainstorm ideas during the Feb. 10th meeting.
Due to severe weather conditions, tonight’s, Thursday Jan 8, South Shore Park Watch meeting is cancelled. Please join us at our meeting next month on Thursday, February 12th at 7:00 pm at the South Shore Park pavilion.
We took a break from meeting in December, but don’t worry, we will be back Thursday, January 8th at 7 pm. Meet inside the South Shore Park Pavilion. And stay warm this holiday season!
Thanks to all the fab volunteers that worked on our native plant garden on Nov. 8. We cut back trees shading out native plants, pulled out garlic mustard, and made room for the native lead plant, which should be a pretty purple come spring. And a special shout out to Brian Russart of Milwaukee County Parks who led us in our quest to provide habitat for migratory birds and increase biodiversity at South Shore.
