Key Peninsula Parks
Key Pen Parks Commissioners have agreed to have a member serve on a committee with 2 members of the KP Lions Club to explore and identify projects in the KP Parks that could be undertaken by the KP Lions. The KP Lions curently are moving forward with finding a way to commemorate the service of Lion Rhys Wood to the country and to the Key Peninsula. The T-Ball field amphitheater will be identified as the Lion Rhys Wood Memorial Amphitheater. A plaque identifying the amphitheater will be unveiled at the 2018 Citizens of the Year event. The plaque has been permanently set at Volunteer Park and the official unveiling will be on November 17, 2018, at 1 p.m. The public is invited.
