The Friends of Mitchell Park, Greenport NY
THANKS FOR A GREAT SUMMER
The Friends of Mitchell Park had our busiest year ever, from fully sponsoring the Tall Ship Amistad and educational experiences for our 6th, 7th and 8th graders, Tai Chi In The park, and two musical events, to being one of several sponsors for Dances in the Park, Shakespeare in the Park, and the One Greenport Festival. For more information, click on the year to see what we did in 2018, 2017, 2016 and earlier.
Stay tuned, we are hoping to sponsor a free day of ice skating for school kids once the weather gets cold enough to allow ice skating - one reason to look forward to winter! Also coming up: more original artwork for the inner scenic panels of the Carousel. Click here to see examples of the artwork for the Carousel rounding boards that we sponsored in 2017.
