Come join us at Ed Levin County Park for a celebration of Jeff Cossins' life on Friday, Sept 28, 1-4pm. Ed Levin was his favorite park, so it's only fitting we host it there. 

We'll have a BBQ and ask that you bring a side dish to share or make a contribution to help in the cost of this homegrown effort to honor our dear Jeff. He was a true Parkie who LOVED being a part of our Parks family and we will so miss his cheerfulness and generous and positive attitude. 

Date/time: Friday, Sept 28, 1-4pm
Place: Spring Valley group picnic site at Ed Levin
RSVP by Sept 19
Bring: a side dish to share or contribution (Venmo @debKing or bring to the event)

I ask that you visit the Evite link (
and RSVP there, so that we know how much food to prepare. This will be a happy occasion to celebrate our friend, colleague and brother-in-green! We hope you'll join us for this very special tribute to Jeff.
