Park Group Has New Name

May 1, 2015

Friends of South Shore Park  (FOSSP) is the new name for the group formerly known as South Shore Park Watch. According to Cary Solberg, past president and current board member, the board decided to change its name because it believes a “friends group” is a recognizable name for a nonprofit volunteer organization. “We are focused on outreach to welcome more members and feel that our updated identity will help in that regard,” Solberg said.

In order to introduce itself to residents and encourage membership, FOSSP is hosting a potluck Thursday, May 14 at 6pm in the South Shore Park Pavilion. Attendees are asked to bring a dish to share. Beverages and tableware will be provided.

The group was established in 1996. Chad VanDierendonck currently serves as president.
