The Annual Meeting of the Friends of Lake View Hill Park (FOLVHP) will be held on Saturday, Feb 17th from 10 am to 12 pm. The meeting will be in the large conference overlooking Lake View Hill in the Dane County Human Services building, formerly known as the Old San! The street address is 1202 Northport Drive and enter at the main entrance. The agenda will include:

  • Presentation from the UW Urban Canid project 
  • Review of the recommendations in the park’s 2009 Master Plan and 2011 Cultural Study with reports on progress made to date
  • Review of 2017 activities and plans for 2018
  • Brief Board of Directors report and election of new board members (see below)

The Friends of Lake View Hill Park is a non-profit organization with a Board of Directors and  we are seeking a new Board Member. Here is a little bit of information for consideration.

  • The FOLVHP is a 501c3 non-profit organization that was created in 1993 to help restore and preserve the park. 
  • We work in partnership with the Dane County Parks and the Dane County Human Services department to enhance this historic and cultural park. 
  • You can learn more about the park at www.lakeviewhill.org and on Facebook @lakeviewhill. 
  • The Director terms are for three years and the Board meets six times each year (and occasionally an extra one if needed!) 
  • Attached is a recent one page flier that provides some additional information.

If you are interested in learning more, send an email to Sue Gleason at smgleason54@gmail.com 

    • In your email include your name, address, email, and phone number. 
      • Describe your main areas of interest such as the park’s history/cultural features, forest/prairie restoration, urban wildlife, community recreation/education or other areas and include any prior experience in the particular areas. 
      • Please note that we are looking for board members that will be active participants in helping to coordinate volunteer and community events. Attending board meetings is just one small part of serving on the FOLVHP Board.

If you have questions or just want to talk about any of this, feel free to give me a call at 608-217-6022.

Note that we do have the Board election on the agenda for Feb 17th so let me if you are interested as soon as possible!

Thank you and we hope to see you at the Annual Meeting!
