Joanna, I wrote to Annie Laurie Gaylor through NOFS, and asked if we should send a letter from the chapter or whether FFRF would do it or whether we should write as individuals. She immediately must have sent my email to her staff attorney, so that answered my questions by default! LOL

The problem we need to address is how do we find FFRF members in our area? Unfortunately, new FFRF members aren't given a list of local chapters, so if they don't know where to look on the FFRF site, they have to go digging.

The folks at the Freedom from Religion Foundation were on this quickly- attached is a PDF of the letter that was sent to the President of Cleveland Metroparks Commission.

Even if it was simply to cover the cost of a display booth, etc., it would still be a govt. entity helping to fund the Christ-FEST. The last thing I'd want to do is cause any trouble for the Parks... LOVE the Cleveland Metroparks! But I guess the goal here is to have them refrain from doing this sort of thing again.

The email link on the Metroparks site appears to be faulty.  However, when you hover on the link the address indicated is:

The 2012 Financial report lists the CEP as Brian M Zimmerman and the CFO as David J Kuntz
The Park Commissioners for 2013 are listed as:
Debra K Berry, Pres
Dan T. Moore, VP
Bruce G. Rinker, VP
Administrative Offices
4101 Fulton Parkway
Cleveland, OH 44144
Phone: [masked] (General Cleveland Metroparks information - 24-hours a day)
Fax: [masked]

I think it would be good to send them letters asking why Metroparks, which is a public, government entity, is listed as a sponsor on the obviously religious event called THE FEST.
