Friends of Palomar State Park Mtg Saturday too!

From: Michael J. Walsh
Everyone is Invited!
Friends of Palomar Mountain State Park – Organizational Meeting
Saturday February 4th,  11:30am at the Palomar Mountain Community Center

Rick Barclay sent a recent post with some very exciting news on the efforts to raise funds to keep Palomar Mountain State Park open.  Over the past couple of months, we have accomplished a great deal towards keeping the park open.  Please make your contribution today!  For those of you who have already made a donation or a pledge, I would also like to add a big, “Thank You!”

This Saturday, the 4th of February, we have a regularly scheduled PMPO meeting at 10am, which is open to the entire community.

After the PMPO meeting, we are hosting an organizational meeting for the Friends of Palomar Mountain State Park.  We will meet in the community center next to the Fire Station, and the meeting will begin at 11:30am.

We invite you to join us!

Rick and I will provide an update on the process of working with the State Parks Department to reach an agreement to keep Palomar State Park open.  The primary objective of the meeting is to reach out to the broader community of interested parties to identify additional volunteers, gather and exchange ideas, and begin to form the organization and map out strategies and responsibilities as we work together to keep our park open and operating.

Many of you are great friends of Palomar State Park, many of you have been working hard to keep the park open, and many of you have already stepped up with a financial contribution.  This is an opportunity for all of us to get together and really mobilize the efforts in an organized, comprehensive way to keep the park open.  This is the first of several meetings we will hold over the next few months, so if you can’t make this one, that’s OK but we still want to hear from you!  We are building a database of interested parties and financial supporters, so please take the time to provide your contact information and specific areas of interest at

And if you have not yet made a donation or pledge, please do so today!  Meeting our initial funding objective will send a strong message of strength and commitment to the Parks Department, that we can and will do our very best to keep the park open!

Thank you very much,

Michael Walsh
Vice Chairman
Friends of Palomar Mountain State Park Committee, CRSPIA
