The Friends of Tomoka Basin State Parks, Inc. is a Citizens Support Organization (CSO) formed to support the Tomoka Basin State Parks. The Friends group operates as a not-for-profit organization whose best interest lies in the preservation, protection, interpretation, promotion and enhancement of the Tomoka Basin State Parks.
The group meets once every other month at either Tomoka or Bulow Plantation State Park. Members can determine their own level of involvement in activities with the Friends group. Membership costs $20 and benefits include:
12 free visits to the park annually
a Friend’s quarterly newsletter
invitations to special friends-only events
a membership card
an opportunity to help improve and support the Tomoka Basin State Parks
Our Friends group is looking for new members and has two openings on their board: Secretary and Membership Secretary. As Secretary you would keep minutes of all meetings, attend to all correspondence and file papers for reference, and give all notices required by statutes, By-laws or resolution. As Membership Secretary you would maintain records of membership, email addresses, all donations and send out thank you letters, send out welcome letters, upcoming events/program schedules, and park information. Either position provides an excellent opportunity for becoming more involved with state parks and for continued leadership development.
If you're interested in receiving more information or in attending a meeting, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also visit our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/FriendsofTomokaBasinStateParks. We would love you have you!
