New Energy Needed
Park Friends, Inc. is in the middle of some changes. Glenn Cox and Melanie White, our two longest running and most active board members (12 and 15 years, respectively), need to cut back and spend more time in other aspects of their lives. Earlier, we lost David Kesler, a Rhodes College biology professor who doubled as webmaster and newsletter editor for PFI, due to his retirement and plans for leaving Memphis. Glenn will also be completely retiring from the board, and Melanie will be handing off her officer duties. Park Friends needs a few people who love Overton Park and are willing to bring their energy and enthusiasm and new ideas to help us protect and steward it. Please consider volunteering a little time to improve the park we all spend so much time in and/or to advocate for parks across the city. Contact Park Friends if you are interested, or talk up this opportunity to friends who love the park.
