United Friends of McCarren Park started a blog recently and it’s the best way to keep up with the groups meetings and activities. Like next up is their next meeting on Tuesday, April 29th. Yes, I realize it’s confusing all the groups and community activists (and meetings! Boy do these people like meetings!) around the nabe nowadays. I’m confused myself but I’d rather see a bunch of people trying to do good things for the neighborhood than not enough.

Park Friends,

It’s time to unite for a better park!

Please join The United Friends of McCarren Park (UFMP) in a discussion about McCarren Park. UFMP takes the ideas from the community and park users to transform them into a vision for the future of McCarren Park.

That’s our mission, and we want to hear your ideas. UNITED, we can
make a difference!

We’re a new group with the ambition of serving McCarren Park users, existing community groups and working with other parks groups in the area. With the influx of new park users and summer approaching this is a great time to get involved!

Please join us for our next meeting:
Tuesday April 29th, 2008
The Polish National Home/Warsaw
261 Driggs Avenue at Eckford Street
Room 9: Second Floor

The proposed agenda:
– Summary of “what we’ve done so far” and next steps
– Community Calendar
– Remember When… photo collection
– It’s My Parks Day in May
– Committee formation
