You know, Whodini was onto something when they released the song “Friends.” Wanna hear it? Hear it goes: “Friends…how many of us have them? Friends…ones we can depend on.”

Friends are important for the building of our character. From our childhood best friends and imaginary friends to our adulthood friends, people who are not family but still love and care about us places them in a very special category. Friend.

With that said, the Jackson Zoo is looking for some friends. In fact, they are reintroducing the metro area to the Friends of the Jackson Zoo.

After years of dormancy, The Friends of the Jackson Zoo is in the beginning stages of renewing itself as an organization . The group will focus on hosting social activities (i.e. Zoo Party, Zoo Brews, Zoo Blues, etc.) and is hoping to attract a young membership. The goal of these social activities is to raise funds for the zoo that will assist with its upkeep and maintenance. Times are hard these days—especially for our dear zoo!

So if you like to plan parties or just plain old party, then consider joining The Friends of the Jackson Zoo for an informational session tomorrow at the King Edward Hotel.
