OPNA has recently been accepted as the official sponsor of Owen Park grounds and pond, through the City's new Adopt-‐a-­Spot program. This alliance will help solidify a formal relationship the Association has long had with the Park and its upkeep. OPNA members are encouraged to volunteer for a once a month clean up. Not everyone will need to volunteer every month. We will plan on one Saturday Morning monthly to canvass the grounds for litter, trash, etc. Plans will be made to clean the ends and banks of the Pond regularly. 

The City will provide necessary training, as well as supplies, including trash bags, gloves, and vests as needed.  This alliance will provide the association a means of communicating our desires for the Park and further foster our relationship with the City.  We will discuss the program at our general meeting Saturday, Feb 23rd.
