Friends of Hemming Park (FOHP) recently stopped programming live music in Downtown’s central park during weekday lunch hours due to budget constraints and feedback from City Council that city dollars should not be spent on programming or events.
Downtown optometrist Dr. Jeffrey Brown of Jax Vision Care quickly chimed in on Facebook saying he’s always enjoyed music during the lunch hour and would be interested in helping. Jax Vision Care is now the sponsor of two days of music in the park every week for the month of August.
Friends of Hemming Park believes in paying artists for their time and talent, and we are currently seeking private dollars to reinstate this key component of our daily programming and our support of the local arts community.
