Urban Park Advocates Summit - October 4, 2011

Hello Fellow Urban Park Advocates

Thank you for your patience as we secured a new date for the Urban Park Advocates Summit - it will be Tuesday, October 4, 2011, at Mechanics Hall in Worcester. Thanks to the dedicated work of the Summit Planning Team* we’ve got a great format and program to offer but realized that the date in early May wouldn’t allow us enough time to market the Summit as widely as it deserves. But now we can!
