We met last week on April 7, 2009 at Common Ground Park in Lakeland. The park is located on the corner of Edgewood Drive and across from Cleveland Heights Golf Course, on Lake Hollingsworth. It was a beautiful park. It is a one acre, all-inclusive park. It came with a million dollar price tag which was picked up mostly from donations. It really is a work of art. There are three different age levels of play for children and the park is designed for any child with physical limitations or wheel chairs. If you have children or are a child at heart you should check it out. I have two rave reviews of the park from my own children and two thumbs up from my wife.
At the business meeting we discussed new officers (I am now a Board member) and we awarded the FFA students their trophies. There are two teachers looking for plant donations to plant a arboretum for all the plant species for the identification parts of the FFA contests. Cull plants will be just fine. If you would like to donate some old plant please call Howie Peterson at 863-644-6491. If there is anything you would like me to work on for the FNGLA Lake Region Chapter please contact me or leave a post to this message.
