This Wednesday at 6:30 PM come to Bradley Lake Park and enjoy a concert in the park.
Elvis and John Denver impersonators will be performing.
This is the first concert Bradley Lake has held.
Filed under Making a Better Puyallup
But will local council impersonator “Earth Muffin” be on hand to be introduced by her mentor (again) to send the audience into rapture ?
My wife and I just returned from the tribute to John Denver and Elvis at Bradley Lake Park. What an incredible evening. There were several hundred citizens in attendance and everyone had fun. The entertainment was great and the setting was perfect. The precedence has been established; concerts can be successful in a venue other than Pioneer Park. It is already time to plan for more concerts here next year.
Now with God and my wife as a witness let me tell you of a conversation as we were leaving. We crossed the street and were almost to our car when a very nice lady took my arm and said, “Excuse me but how did you know about the concert?” I told her of my involvement and that I was given flyers to distribute etc. She understood. Then she said, “I did not know about it. I discovered it while walking in the park this evening. It was so good and I enjoyed myself.” The city has to bust its backside getting information to our citizens about Parks and Recreation Department events and particularly when they are free and open to the public. How many posters were distributed south of the fairgrounds? Why is this the first concert, at least that I have noticed, to be included in the Herald? Why do the parks not have bulletin boards, as vandal proof as possible, that announce such events? Now more than ever the city needs to be reaching out to its citizens to avail themselves of the activities such as this.
I offer myself as a volunteer asset as you work to improve communications with our citizens. The lady that stopped me paid, in some part for the concert, she should be told about it.
Until 18 months agao, the city sent out a quaterly newsletter to its citizens with information and news such as this. The newsletter was curtailed by the city. According to the PR focal at the city (Glenda Carino), the annual cost of the newsletter was equivalent to half of one employees salary and they unilaterally decided to forego the newsletter.
A suggestion was made to the City Manager (Dannenberg) to reinstitute the newsletter for a one time shot with a note that it would only be sent to those who signed up for it after that. He (Dannenberg) agreed.
The City Manager then reneged on the promise. Well, what’s new ?
I ask the question, “what is the function of city hall, to provide services or jobs for municipal employees ?”
We now know the answer.
Good work Bob, City Hall should thank you, especially the City Manager’s office for doing their job.
