From LSCG President Bill Pitts

This is a reminder that we are having a park clean up day this Saturday, March 26th. The clean up is being sponsored by the Sky Pilots and they need our help. As mentioned before, when we had our Lake Sarasota Community Group clean up day at the park, the Sky Pilots came out in force and helped us. It is now our turn to repay the favor. The clean up will be from 9:00 AM till 12:00 Noon,so its just 3 hours (not a full day job).

There will be some food served and water will be provided for the workers.

PLEASE TRY AND MAKE IT TO THE CLEAN UP! THE MORE PEOPLE THAT SHOW UP, THE FASTER AND EASIER IT IS FOR EVERYONE AND THE BETTER OUR PARK WILL LOOK WHEN WE ARE DONE.

Here's one reason the park needs periodic clean-ups: the picnic tables are regularly thrown in the water, or moved, or used for bridges, or broken up. The Petanque players had a large gathering last Sunday, and they found only three picnic tables where there used to be six.

Today they found only two:



Because the third is "in use":



(Parents of Lake Sarasota kids: the park is a great asset for the neighborhood, a great place for kids to play. Come over once in a while and have a look -- if they're "re-purposing" tables and benches paid for by our tax dollars, please set them straight before the Sheriff has to.)

Thanks for posting the pictures of the vandalism in the park. We see things such as this everyday. Recently the county had to remove tables, plywood, lawn chairs, etc from the water and one of the islands. Another issue are the unleased dogs and the owners that do not clean up after their pets!
