Friends of Rouge Park Plan Their Appreciation Day

The Friends of Rouge Park are planning an event called the Rouge Park Appreciation Day to both celebrate saving the park from development and to clean up the park and a portion of the Rouge River. A planning meeting to facilitate the various details is scheduled for this coming Wednesday, March 21, at 6 p.m. in St. Suzanne School. Everyone is invited to attend.

The event itself is scheduled for Saturday, June 2. Clean-up of the park will begin at 8 a.m. that day. Lunch is scheduled for 11 a.m. and will followed by a model airplane demonstrations by the Detroit Aeromodelers Association and horseback rides from the Buffalo Soldiers Association.

The Appreciation Day is sponsored by the Detroit Aero Modelers, Friends of the Rouge, Friends of Rouge Park and the City of Detroit's Recreation Department. A flyer for the event can be downloaded here (Adobe Reader required).

HELLO WARRENDALE
ROUGE PARK IS A TREASURE..
AND THE APPRECIATION AND CLEAN UP
IS A GREAT IDEA..
I WOULD SUGGEST THAT ALL GROUPS
MAKE BOARDING UP AND FENCING OFF
THE BATHROOMS, W.OUTER DRIVE NEAR
TIREMAN AND THE ONE NEAR DOVER,
THAT ARE OPEN TO TRESSPASS,
DELAPIDATED, AND DANGEROUS TO
PARK USERS..THE CAN BE HAVENS TO
PROSTITUTES AND DRUG USERS...

AND EVERYONE SHOULD TRY AND HAVE
MIKE ILITCH, AND LITTLE CAESARS
PIZZA, CREATE 30 NEW BASEBALL
DIAMONDS FOR ADULTS AND CHILDREN
TO PLAY ON...
HOPEFULLY, SOME ONE WITH
CONNECTIONS TO THE DETROIT
PISTONS, CAN GET THEIR CHARITY TO
BUILD 30 NEW BASKETBALL COURTS..

THERE IS A LOT THAT CAN BE DONE
TO IMPROVE ROUGE PARK, MORE
PICNIC TABLES, GRILLES
THE CITY CAN'T DO IT..BUT PEOPLE
WITH FRIENDS IN BUSINESSES SHOULD
TAP THEM TO HELP..
MAKE ROUGE PARK ...GREATER..
