I love these information cards that include braille on them.

Southwind Park will sponsor a free shrimp boil from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
today at the park site, Second Street and Southwind Road. (Map)

Construction is under way on many of the park's features, and those
attending the shrimp boil can view the status of the work..

Seafood for the shrimp boil is being donated by Robert's Seafood, and
Skeff Distributors has donated beverages.

The event is open to the public.

Although it is free, donations to the park would be welcome.

In case of rain, the event will be held inside the park's maintenance
supply building.
