Dear Amigos and Friends of Green Map,
On behalf of the new Board of Directors of Amigos de la Presa, greetings!
I’m writing to you today to invite you to an ‘open house’ for Amigos de la Presa, on Sunday, September 6, from 10:00 AM until 2:00PM.
Please come and see the new location for Amigos de la Presa near the end of El Camino Viejo de San Miguel on the ‘shore’ of the Presa Allende.
Your neighbors, friends, and family are welcome as we are eager to share all the news of Amigos de la Presa and to encourage you to participate in all we do.
Feel free to bring your canoe, sailboat, kayak, or rowing shell … although the current drought has put some limitations on how far we may row and sail. Also, feel free to take a picnic along.
As is our usual practice, we will spend at least part of the time walking about the shoreline cleaning debris. Bring gloves and maybe a plastic bag if you want to help with this effort.
On the ‘agenda’ for the open house:
1) See the location where we hope to eventually have a boathouse for Amigos de la Presa
2) Celebrate the fact that Amigos de la Presa is now an Asociación Civil which means we can now accept charitable contributions.
3) Hear about the plans we have to improve the water quality of the Presa and learn about other similar efforts underway.
4) Help the Board to learn of your wishes
5) Meet other members of Amigos who share your interests and concerns!
We hope you can attend!
Directions: Starting on Canal, follow it straight out of town past the bus station, past Immigration (both on the left). Shortly thereafter the road enters the 'parking lot' for the train station - bare left and cross the railroad tracks, go straight ahead on the cobblestone road (not the paved road to the right). Follow for about 2 miles. (At the fork in the road - stay straight/bear right). When the cobbles stones turn to a dirt road there will be chain link fence on the right and the entrance of the Otomi development on the left ..go about 100 yards more and … that’s where we will be!
If you need a ride, call me at 415 114-4882. Amigos de la Presa is a citizen-based organization whose object it is to promote the recreational use of the Presa and to work toward the continual improvement of the water quality of the Presa.
