Old Settlers Park at Palm Valley
Over 250 volunteers from more than 25 different organizations went out on a chilly Saturday morning to plant trees as part of the 2005 Arbor Day Celebration. In little more than an hour, volunteers planted 104 lovely, fully leafed out trees along Harrell Parkway in Old Settler's Park at Palm Valley. This years' planting marked the completion of a three year Arbor Day project to plant trees along the entire length of Harrell Parkway.
Thank you to the following groups who participated in the tree planting: the Clay Madsen Recreation Center Dream team; Girl Scout Troops 2052, 477, and 1607; Cub Scout Packs 233, 165, and 365; Kiwanis noon, Leadership Round Rock, Rotary Sunrise, Rotary Interact-Stoney Point; Sertoma, UT-Alpha Phi Sigma; Round Rock Key Club; Southwestern University-APO; students from Pflugerville High School and Connally High School; representatives from the Library, Public Works, Finance, Planning, Police, Human Resources, Parks, and Fire Departments; the Round Rock Volunteer Center; the Texas Forest Service and Smokey; the United States Forest Service; and Williamson County.
A special thank you to Tres Lindas and Round Rock Donuts for providing breakfast for all the volunteers.
Thank you all so much for truly making this a community event. This was our most successful Arbor Day to date, and it is because of the dedication and support shown by these many organizations and their hard working members. We look forward to continuing the Round Rock Arbor Day tradition, and we will see you all in 2006!
