Friday was a great day for the people of this area. As I had posted back in November of last year, our County Park System was shut down and closed due to a very small levy's failure. Today, the Park System re-opened. It was re-opened through the efforts of many concerned citizens and groups. They have voluntarily offered to help maintain the parks and trails, and donations have been made to help ease the financial burden. We are, by no means, "out of the woods" yet. The Park System still needs more financial support that can only come from the entire community, not just a caring few.
Please visit our parks, if you are able, to see what these wonderful places have to offer and why they need to be preserved and open to the public. Also, when the new levy comes up on the ballot again, please do the right thing and vote YES for it. It IS the right thing to do.
