Director's Corner

November is here and Mother Nature keeps flirting with cooler weather...sure is a nice change! 

We've got our last Food Truck Fest coming up November 14. If you missed us in October (and the Food Truck Fest competition winner--Rockwell Collins), this is the last fest of the 2017 season. Make plans to join us at 990 Explorer Blvd.  

Our last Geek2Geek of the year is also rapidly approaching. We hope you'll hold November 16 on your calendar for some good geeky fun at the Pub at the Jackson Center. We'll have registration up shortly for our geeks and nerds!

Trying to plan Thanksgiving? Protesting the kitchen? There are three great turkey day dining options for you and your loved ones. Check out the Westin Huntsville's Thanksgiving Day Brunch, and meals at Texas de Brazil and Urban Cookhouse--all located at Bridge Street Town Centre in CRP. (I'm hungry already!)

We're planning for 2018 and the years ahead and need your help! Later this month and again in December, we'll be sending out a couple of surveys. When you see these, would you do us a favor and share with your work colleagues? Your input is truly valuable in helping us ensure we're programming and planning for what you want in CRP.

Speaking of your work you think they get the CRP Connect newsletter? With nearly 26,500 employees working in the Park, we want to ensure employees in CRP know what's happening in the Park and how they can get engaged. Forward this link to your colleagues and friends where they, too, can sign up for our distribution (including this newsletter).

Thanks for reading and see you around the Park!
