TOSC Annual Members’ Celebration Oct 23
Enjoy a fun night out with TOSC!

Join the Trails and Open Space Coalition Thursday, Oct 23, 6-8 pm for a very special evening of food and drink, friends and fun! We are looking forward to treating our Members to a relaxing evening out, to sharing our vision for 2015 and thanking you for your support. This is a free, informal Members’ event. Our partners from County Parks, and City Parks and Streets Departments will be on hand to answer your questions. Want to know what’s coming up with bike lanes? Parks projects? New trails? Visit their kiosks and get the answers.
We’ll have appetizers by Picnic Basket and desserts from local restaurants. Beer and wine, tea and lemonade will be served.  Let’s celebrate together! Join the Facebook event for an online reminder.
