Help Beautify Albany

February 15, 2007

Albany - It's hard to imagine the need for a cool place to rest your head on a cold day like this, but on a hot South Georgia day, it's always in need.

At Holloway Park, there's not much shade for walkers enjoying the area, so a community tree planting day is planned for this Saturday at 10 AM. 116 Crape Myrtles will be planted in pre-dug holes.

Pat Perdew says, "We drive by and we see a lot of elderly people walking particularly in the summertime and there is no shade here." Commissioner Gurr wants you to brave the cold.  He says, "The more we have out here, the less we have to be in the cold. It's going to be pretty chilly Saturday morning but we encourage people to come out and join us. It's going to be a good project."

If you want to help plant trees, all you have to do is show up. Dress warmly and bring a shovel if you have one available.
