This is not a Meetup with a time, place and event to attend. It is an invitation and a request for you to help the James River Park.
Some Meet-up groups charge a fee for participating in events. I have never done that and don't intend to. I would however like each of you members to consider making a contribution to the James River Park System.
Your contribution could be in the form of a James River Park System license plate.
DMV informs that, "As a revenue-sharing plate, after the sale of the first 1,000 qlalifying plates, $15 of the $25 fee is transferred to Friends of the James River Park and used to support its programs. The first 1,000 have been achieved, and therefore your registration will in effect be a $15 donation which will be repeated annually upon renewal.
You'll find details on ordering the plates here:
Another is to become a member of "Friends of James River Park". Annual dues are $15. Here are those details.
One of the benefits is you'll get to attend the "Friends of James River Park" annual summer party in the dance hall of the 1882 Pump House. I will schedule the party as a meet-up when the date, probably in June 2014, is announced.
Better yet, why not do both?
If you have already done one or both of these things, please let others know by your YES RSVP to this meet-up.
If you do both, please indicate that by including yourself plus a "guest" in your RSVP (as I have).
How about join Ralph White, former manager of the James River Park System and me in becoming a Friend of James River Park and get yourself the coolest license plate in the state?
