Friends Group Gathering

Where: Dineen Park Pavilion, 6601 W. Vienna, Milwaukee
When: Saturday, April 13th, 10am – Noon

*Parking is available in close proximity to the pavilion off of Vienna*

This year we have two guest speakers:

  • Katie Williams, member of the South Shore Park Watch and Farmers Market committee, will share her findings on the impact of friends groups. Katie did her Masters Thesis on friends groups a few years ago and is now expanding her research through a new extended study.
  • Kim Caviggiola, Co-chair of Doctors Park Friends, will share her groups methods and practices employed during their creation of a draft “Park Restoration Plan”. The Restoration Plan has been in the works nearly since the group started two years ago. The 100 page plan is quite impressive!

After the speakers, we will take a short break (coffee, juice and snacks provided) and then head in to a round-robin of small groups to discuss the topics of fundraising, relationships within the park and community and volunteerism. A staff member from Volunteer Milwaukee will be on hand to assist in the discussion of volunteers.

We hope to see you there and ask that you send this invite out to all of your members. Please RSVP so we know what to anticipate for snacks at: jim or by calling 414-273-7275.
