The Veterans Day Tree Planting event was a success. It was well attended and by the feedback I received from veterans, it was a special occasion. In all we ended up planting 74 trees. Now, all that it is left is to place a marker celebrating the event.
Top picture shows Council Member Brewster McCracken presenting the Veterans Day Tree Planting proclamation, which I donated to the American Legion Post #76. Also accepting the proclamation are Park and Recreation Department Director Warren Struss, PARD staff Leigh Martin (super event coordinator), and Travis Post #76 Chaplain Jason Denny. Bottom was taken at the tree planting event. Also in the podium, Council Members Kim and Leffingwell. In attendance, but out of view Council Member Martinez.
Thank you American Legion Post #76, Texas Air Guard, Austin City Council, Tree Folks, Parks and Recreation Department, and PARD’s Board.
