Firends of Swenson to be formed


Blair Hake speaks at Monday's town hall meeting concerning Swenson Park Golf Course at Sierra Middle School. [CLIFFORD OTO/THE RECORD

This message form Blair Hake, the Save Swenson activist:

“I’m an going to go ahead and  establish the nonprofit Friends of Swenson. Hopefully we can model it after Pixie Woods. That’s what I’d love to see happen. Whether the city’s interested or not, I don’t know at this time.”

The city is always interested in people or finance districts that help pay costs. So kudos to Hake and anyone who addresses their concerns about Swenson’s future by contributing to its preservation as green space.

That said, Swenson Golf Course loses six figures annually. Friends of Swenson will have to be mighty friendly to raise funds necessary to sustain the golf course, let alone to raise the millions necessary for needed upgrades. Still, a constructive step.
