Sprucing up the place
We're not putting in spruce, technically, but Brian Dougherty of the Oklahoma City Community Foundation dropped by our Neighborhood Association meeting tonight to hand us a check: we'd qualified for a grant from the Margaret Annis Boys Trust to help rework our little stretch of park along May Avenue. There's a fair amount of sweat equity involved, inevitably, but it helps to have the nursery bills paid before you start planting, and we picked up just over $8500 to support new trees and the watering thereof.
Here's a brief bio of our benefactor. She would have been 99 this year.Posted at 8:44 PM to City Scene , Surlywood
