We had a great turnout today at George Cossar State Park on beautiful Enid Lake in North Mississippi.
Over 30 folks came out to hear from MS State Representative Bill Kinkade (Chairman, MFWP committee) and MS State Park Foundation Director Charlie Hoots. Rep Kinkade shared his vision for the revitalization of the state parks and outlined the funding requested to tackle capital improvements over the next 5 years. Mr. Hoots shared the mission and vision of the Foundation and explained how it can help the Friends groups with future projects.
Rep. Bill Kinkade, Charlie Hoots, John Thompson and Rich Ross
This group has been sidelined for the past two years due to Covid and is very excited to get back to work. They have big plans for making their park better and are ready to put in the work to make it happen. We appreciate Parks Director, John Thompson, and Friends of Cossar President, Rich Ross, for inviting us to be a part of their meeting.
Do you have a “Friends” group? Let us know if you would like for us to come visit with you.
