Letter: Protect Penticton Parks AGM coming up

Open letter to members of the Save Skaha and Protect Penticton Parks Society

Many thanks to you for being there to “save” and “protect” Skaha and all Penticton’s parks.

Although it has been and still remains my desire that our public parklands be saved and protected, I am sorry to say that I cannot continue on the board of directors of the Protect Penticton Parks Society.

But I hope that you will continue to be there and to participate.

Our public parks are very desirable places and are still very much at risk.

Penticton still needs an advocacy group such as this has been. A presence and a voice to keep our park spaces in the public hands protected, open, green, unencumbered, free to be accessed and enjoyed by all. A voice to restrict the putting of concrete, pavement and corporate structures and activities on public parkland that prevent these rights and privileges.

Therefore I hope you members realize your importance in keeping this society operating, you are aware and committed to the purpose for which this society was begun; that at least five to seven dedicated people will set their names forward to be directors; be prepared for and attend this upcoming annual general meeting, Dec.16, 2019 at 7 p.m.; that there will be more communication & celebration throughout the year between members and the Board, with at least two public gathering events so we stay in touch and strong

I would love to hear from you. You can contact me at my personal email: publicparks4people@gmail.com.
