There will be a public meeting to discuss the future of Hope Lodge on Wednesday January 20 at 7pm at the First Presbyterian Church, Bethlehem Pike and East Mill Road in Flourtown.
Hope Lodge was closed temporarily for public visitation last November 20 by the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission due to the reduction in funding under the new state budget. The Friends of Hope Lodge plan to reopen the site on some basis in the spring, and also want to establish a sustainable operating plan for the site. We believe the key to the future of Hope Lodge will be making the entire 40-plus acre site a more valuable community resource. The Friends will present some ideas for creating a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) venture, as well as recreational and educational opportunities.
We want your input, your ideas, and your involvement. Please come to the meeting on January 20.
What: Public Meeting for Hope Lodge
Who: Sustainable Springfield
When: Wed Jan 20, 2010, 7-9 pm EST
