Let's stay together

A BIG THANK YOU to the 75 lovely people who attended our little shindig last night, to the many CPOP supporters who couldn't make the meeting but sent encouraging emails, to the folks at Rhodes College for providing such a great space, to the helpful Rhodes staff members who made sure everything ran smoothly, and to the intrepid souls who kept a dozen small children occupied while we did our Boring Grownup Stuff in the auditorium.

All of us on the CPOP board deeply appreciate your interest and support. And now we're all humming that tune.

A more detailed report on last night's meeting is coming soon. In the meantime, please write a letter to the Commercial Appeal ( and/or Councilman Jim Strickland ( to voice your support for CPOP and the preservation of the Old Forest. That forest needs you.

I was really impressed to see such a diverse group of people turn out in support of the forest. And thanks for the childcare- that made it possible for me to attend!

Naomi and all the CPOP crew. Thanks for a great and informative presentation of the challenges facing us in preserving our, let me say that again, OUR, forest in Overton Park. If I can be of any assitance from A-Z let me know......Billy
