We now have a solid date for the planned cleanup and tree planting at the Star of Hope memorial area near the East Greenbush Public Library — 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, June 9.
If you are interested in participating, please email Terry Brewer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This will be a joint undertaking between SRC and a contingent from Columbia High School. The effort will be both a renewal of the memorial area as well as our participation in Rotary International’s worldwide tree planting project.
The memorial was created during the 2001-02 academic year by the CHS Interact Club to honor students who passed away before they could graduate. However, that club has been non-existent for a number of years and upkeep of the memorial has been lacking. The library-neighboring Greenbush YMCA will be watering and maintaining the site.
