Hurricane Sandy Tree Fund

My post for last Monday revealed the devastation Hurricane Sandy wrought on the trees of our park system. Early in the week I visited the Park Department, leaving a message that I wanted to establish an independent tree fund to help address some of this damage.

   Although City Officials never responded to my message, last night Friends Of The Parks sent me an advanced copy of their new initiative.  Students of this blog know that for my taste, I find that group too cozy with the Administration.  However, I will put the trees first, and inform my readers that Friends has now established a Hurricane Sandy Fund, they can also be reached at 610 432-7275.

It appears they cut and paste directly from your original post on this matter. "...fell like bowling pins in the sustained wind" is right from that post. What's up with that?

They should let you run Friends of the Parks.

@7:31, those sort of formal organizations are not my style, i would not want to run it, but, i have decided to ask for a chair at their table. i represent some viewpoints, held by many citizens, that have not been given consideration in recent years.
