Friends of Christopher Columbus Park Celebrates 10th Anniversary

“Over the last ten years, the growth of this neighborhood organization and its impact on the Park has been dynamic,” says current President Joanne Hayes-Rines. “Since its beginning with just 12 founding members, FOCCP has grown tremendously, with more than 200 members today. We have an incredibly involved and active membership and wonderful support from local businesses.”
