From Bill Conkle, President of Friends of Jefferson Park:

Friends and Neighbors:

The good news is that the City will be planting seven new trees in Jefferson Park this Fall/Winter. They will replace trees that have been lost over the years on the park overlook.

The bad news is that we need an additional 13 trees along the perimeter of the park to replace other trees that have been lost. We need to act NOW to take advantage of the “adopt a tree” program the City offers. For the cost of $50, the City will plant an additional tree in the park. The deadline is Monday, October 1st, so please act quickly.

By way of this note I pledge the first $50 to adopt a tree for Jefferson Park. I challenge others, if you are able, to do the same. If you want to pledge $50 for a tree in Jefferson Park, please call me at 804-615-3764 or write junkifunki@aol.com . I will do all the paperwork and write the check to the City’s Adopt a Tree Program. You can get the $50 to me at your convenience. Trees can be given in honor or memory of someone, and more than one person/family can team up to adopt a tree. This is a wonderful opportunity to make a long term gift to the park and the neighborhood. Only twelve more trees to go!

Bill Conkle, President
