Moon Over Maclay 2018 RESCHEDULED

Sunday November 4th

To begin, I trust that those who are receiving this message are making your way through the recovery process from Hurricane Michael without additional obstacles and that you and yours are well.

As you would imagine, our beloved Maclay State Park was ravaged by Michael. I spoke with the Sasha Craft, the Park Manager this morning and was told that a “strike team” from the southern part of the state was at Maclay to assist the Staff with cleanup but were only briefly before leaving to tend to the destruction at the parks west of here. At present, numerous trees are down, along with powerlines. The park entrance road off Maclay Road is closed at this time and there is no certain date as to when the park will reopen.

As a result, we have no option but to postpone the 2018 Moon Over Maclay concert date until Sunday, November 4, 2018.

The Friends of Maclay Gardens sincerely appreciate your support of our efforts through the years and trust that this is just one of those hurdles that we will get over as we move on the fulfill our calling of serving the needs of Alfred B. Maclay Gardens State Park.

I hope to see all of you on November 4th for another Moon Over Maclay!
