Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for New Chess Plaza in Francis Park
You are invited to a ribbon-cutting ceremony to be held at 11:00 am, Saturday, July 8th in Francis Park for the opening of a chess plaza next to Lanai Coffee.
The Chess Club and Scholastic Center of Saint Louis donated two beautiful chess tables for use by the neighborhood chess enthusiasts and want-to-be chess players.
Chess Grand Masters will visit the park on some Saturdays to offer chess tips, strategies and demonstrations. A schedule will be posted by the tables and on the Friends of Francis Park web site. Chess sets will be available for loan or bring your own set.
If you have any questions call Rosemary Spitler 314-352-4885.
