The public is invited to bring their ideas to an informational meeting on Saturday, Nov. 2 at Hawn State Park near Ste. Genevieve.   The meeting will be held at 6 p.m. at the park’s amphitheater.

Representatives from the facility will provide information on future plans for the park and answer questions. Visitors are invited to share comments and suggestions about the park. These informational meetings are part of an ongoing effort by the Missouri State Parks to ensure that the public has input on services and facilities offered in state parks and historic sites.

Jay Nixon and First Lady Georganne Nixon are inviting Missourians to join them in completing 100 Missouri Miles of outdoor physical activity by the end of the year.

For more information and to take the Challenge, visit Participants can also share adventures, post photos and learn about upcoming events by connecting with 100 Missouri Miles on Facebook and Twitter.
