Mayor to hold Brown Bag Lunches at city parks

Huntington Mayor Brooks Fetters announces plans to hold a summer series of Brown Bag Lunches in various city parks.

The first lunch will be held on Friday, May 24, at noon at Elmwood Park.

Huntington residents are invited to bring their own lunches and talk with Fetters and various city department heads during the meal. Fetters says he plans to ride his bicycle to each of the lunches.

"I wanted to have a scheduled time to get out and meet with residents during the summer months," Fetters says. "I considered different ideas and decided that asking them to join me for lunch at one of our city parks was a good way to make that happen."

Additional Brown Bag Lunches will be held June 28 at General Slack Park, July 26 at Memorial Park, Aug. 23 at Drover Park and Sept. 27 at Yeoman Park.

"My goal is to make special time to visit with residents in an informal setting and to share time with them in our great city parks," Fetters says. "I will be having different department heads attend the lunches, so residents will have a chance to meet them also."
