 Arbor Day in Round Rock, 2004

Harrell Parkway, Old Settlers Park at Palm Valley

Another 102 trees were added to Harrell Parkway, Old Settlers Park at Palm Valley, on Saturday morning. The tree planting was a success with about 200 volunteers finishing most of the work, including mulching, by 11 a.m.!

Organizations represented in this tree planting included Stony Point ROTC, Round Rock High School, Noon Rotary Club, Sunrise Rotary Club, Rotarians from Saltillo, Mexico (guests of the Sunrise Club), Noon Kiwanis, Morning Sertoma, Leadership Round Rock class, Chaparral's Women Club, YMCA Indian Guides (Metowoc), Cub Scout Pack 165, and representatives from City Departments, including: Library, Public Works- Engineering, Public Works- Water Plant, Fire Department, Planning and Community Development, Human Resources, and of course, various divisions of Parks and Recreation. The Volunteer Center did a great job in recruiting and referring a large number of volunteers. Trees were in the ground within an hour, and mulching was done the second hour. Almost all the volunteers were done by 11 a.m.

Thanks for donations from Lone Star Bakery, Ole Taco, and Golden Corral.

Thank you all so much for the success and fellowship shared at this event.  It was so great to have such a great support and participation of all ages from all over the city.
