Volunteers Step Up to Care for Julia Lee Park

Volunteers Farrel and Nancy with Parks Department gardener Sara Franks

Hurray! We have two wonderful volunteers from our community who have stepped up to care for the Julia Lee Park located at MLK Jr Way just south of Madison. 

Today, Nancy Jordan and Farrel Oglesby braved the chilly and steady rain to meet with Parks Dept gardener Sara Franks to review their duties. They will receive close support from Sara as they learn how prune trees and care for the plants. Farrel has an association with Bailey-Boushay and is able to borrow tools from their supplies.

Nancy and Farrel will do general tidying, plant annuals, rake leaves and participate in the planning to enhance the park’s beauty. They expect to rally more support from the community. The annual Spring Clean, sponsored by the Madison Valley Merchant Association, will include the park in their agenda this May as additional support.

Thank you to Nancy and Farrel! Neighborhood citizens who volunteer their talents enhance the living experience for all of us.
