Save the Date 2/18- Help Save the Picnic!

Dear Friends,
Jimmy’s Picnic is ON THE AGENDA for the NEXT SF Rec & Park Commission meeting!

When: NEXT Thursday, 2/18, meeting starts at 1:00 pm
Where: SF City Hall, Rm 416
What: The SF Rec & Park Commission will discuss whether or not they will allow us to hold the Picnic at Speedway Meadow, Golden Gate Park, in October 2010!

The meeting start time has been changed a few times—but we got confirmation from the Commission itself this week that it’s scheduled for 1:00 pm. We know this in the middle of a week/workday, but we would love for our supporters to come out in full force! Even if you can’t make it right at 1:00, come down when you get the chance! We don’t know exactly what time we’ll be called.
We want to show our dedication and solidarity!
If you feel like speaking, there will be a time for public comment.

Please keep sending in those letters to your City Supervisors, the Mayor, and of course, the SF Recreation & Park Dept.
It helps if you also send a copy to us at, so we know how many letters are going out.

Check out more info, including a sample letter and contact info in our previous blog posts, listed below.
