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.
