organizations for their outstanding
service to the community. The awards – one
for a local volunteer, the other for
professional service – are named for
George Lovgren, the Park Slope activist
who in the 1960s worked tirelessly to save
the Union Street firehouse (today, Squad
1) from closure. The awards epitomize the
Civic Council's philosophy – that it's the
people who care about their community that
have made Park Slope a great place to
We believe your work on behalf of dog
owners, Prospect Park visitors and the
community at large makes FIDO very well
deserving of this award, and we would be
honored to present this award in person
at our June Trustees' Meeting taking
place on Thursday, June 8th at the Old
Stone House in Washington Park at 7pm."
