Alcove Spring Preservation Association Organizational & Recruiting Meeting Planned

January 11th at 7:00 PM at the Wagon Wheel in Marysville

In 20 years the friends society has taken Alcove Spring from a pasture to a well-known, National Park Service (NPS) certified site, with historic sites and trails marked and designed to NPS standards. The balance of the park has hosted weddings, youth and scouting events, Indian dance, miles of walking trails to mention a few. It has hosted fitness oriented events with more to come and largest of all, a concert by the Topeka Symphony Orchestra that will make a return this fall.

Be a part of the next 20 years. What would you like to see at YOUR park? We are heading into technology, greater health and fitness usage, spreading the historic story, new and expanded partnerships, etc. The educational potential is virtually untapped. It is a rich resource for studying nature, birds, plants and more. We plan to purchase a covered wagon to help educate visitors, schools and visitors about pioneer history.

We have a place for everyone. We need help with maintenance, storytellers, reenactors, tech savvy folks, advertising, research, writing, promotion, events grant writing and finance. We will give a short background. Travis Boley, Assoc. Mgr. of the Oregon-California Trails Assn., one of our partners will be on hand to help field questions. Won’t you be a part of the society family and share in the Alcove experience? Join us January 11th at the Wagon Wheel!
