Where's Amy Poehler ? Parks Staff Feted at Arena
A year ago we had no idea the city would be hosted a pro hockey team and the P&R staff has done a great job working the Privateers in to all the other activities at the Fairgrounds.
Also tonight I attended a meeting of the Thompson Park Conservancy. It was nice to meet the stewards of the Zoo and talk about their plans.
As an aside, there is a Red Cross blood drive tomorrow at City Hall in the Council Chambers.
