  1. Greetings – here at The Landmark Society we are thrilled to see our Park on the list of Event Spaces. Please note, however, that it is St. Joseph’s Park, not Joseph’s Park.

    The list was brought to my attention by Shawn Dunwoody who said “Vote!” Is there a way to vote on the finalists?

    Thanks so much

  2. Cindy, thank you for bringing that to our attention. We have made that change. The listed spaces are all winners, not finalists, so there is no voting at this point.
