The People for Palmer Park annual membership meeting on Saturday, April 11 will share big plans and small plants.
Plans to be revealed include Log Cabin stabilization and new bathrooms in several locations. The tennis courts will be resurfaced this year, and four children’s courts will be added. This work will be planned and completed by the City of Detroit General Services Department.
Amaryllis plants, grown by the Detroit General Services Department, are gifts to the first 75 members who show up or donate $25 or more at the meeting Saturday morning, April 11 at Detroit Unity Temple.
"The transformation of Palmer Park has continued with a new playscape for children, new streetlights, the return of the Palmer Park Art Fair, an urban garden area and enhanced recreational programming – all in 2014. We are very grateful for the partnership and support we have with both the City of Detroit Recreation Department and the General Services Department. Join us April 11th to learn more and get involved in this park resurgence!” said Rochelle Lento, president of People for Palmer Park.
All are invited; all are welcome to join; only members can vote at the meeting.
People for Palmer Park and Integrity Shows also will share details and work by some artists who will appear in the Palmer Park Art Fair May 2 and 3.
Members also will review the nonprofit organization's finances and elect board members.
PFPP directors will give an update on the master plan, which was unveiled last fall, and will answer questions.
