When: October 14, 5-7pm
Where: Southwest quadrant of the park
FOLP will provide free food and drink, and live acoustic entertainment throughout the evening. Opportunity to learn about, and volunteer for, various FOLP and other community activities will be available. There will be information about the ongoing park renovation and the opportunity to meet citywide park professionals, as well as FOLP board members and activists working with Dog Friends of Lafayette Park, Tennis Friends of Lafayette Park, the Lafayette Park Playground Committee, and the Lafayette Park Landscape Committee.
This is the first of many events planned over the next 12 months, before the actual renovation gets underway. The $10 million public bond funding will not cover all of the improvements planned for the renovation. Park lighting, a Community Garden, and an enhanced Playground are Lafayette Park projects that may require private fundraising. Although the Fall Social is free, and totally produced by FOLP and some very supportive sponsors, we hope attendees will use this event to fall in love with our park, and spark their desire to contribute or raise funds so our newly renovated park will be fun, beautiful, and safe for all of our park.
Music for the evening’s event will be provided by local San Francisco artists and musicians. Artists scheduled to perform include: Katie Garibaldi www.katiegaribaldi.com Noelle Richards, Lucky Lew http://www.myspace.com/luckylew2 and Roy G. Biv and the Mnemonic Devices http://www.facebook.com/roygbivband
Come out on October 14 and have fun!
