ZAPP Collecting Letters of Support for Zoo

An email distributed by former mayoral candidate Jonathan Lee and his "Friday Forum" group, which meets every Friday morning at Koinonia Coffee House, is asking for letters of support for the Jackson Zoo.

The Jackson Zoological Park's accreditation is up for review later this month, and the Community Outreach Committee of the Zoo Area Progressive Partnership (ZAPP) is collecting letters of support on behalf ot he zoo "from residents, businesses, churches and friends of West Jackson" in an effort to help the zoo keep its current status.

"If you haven't written a letter," Lee wrote, "please take a minute to write a few words about your Zoo-going, your interest in keeping the Zoo in West Jackson, your commitment to help re-develop the Zoo area and promote memberships and visits."

Letters will be accepted until Thursday, September 5, and can be addressed to Ms. Beth Poff at bpoff@jacksonzoo.org.
