Help save the bench

Editor:

I am asking the readers of the Alameda Sun to help us save the Clark Memorial Bench in Jackson Park from demolition. This 94-year-old large concrete bench is a favorite place for young Alameda residents to gather. 

Our petition asks the Recreation and Parks Commission to repair damage caused by a storm six months ago. 

Log onto MoveOn.org and enter “Alameda.” The petition is entitled “Save the Bench.” 

The fate of the bench will be determined at the Thursday, June 12, Recreation and Parks commission meeting.
