Tribute Park Gets Spruced Up For Summer
Volunteers joined with Parks and Recreation personnel last Saturday to get Tribute Park ready for the summer – cleaning, pruning, mulching and putting in new plantings. The park, which was created in memory of those who died in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, opened in 2005, just days before the fourth anniversary of the attacks. A group of six volunteers gather every Tuesday between 8:30 a.m. and 10 a.m., the day of the week and time of day when the planes struck the Twin Towers, to clean up and work in the park’s garden. Additional volunteers are always welcome. “We really need [more] help,” said volunteer Nadia Murphy.
