Volunteers Needed Veterans Day
The Murfreesboro Rotary Club has donated $2,000 to purchase approximately 150 trees and shrubs that will be planted along Lytle Creek, in an area near Jennings and Ayers Funeral Home.
Rotarian Gib Backlund explained . . .
The Tennessee Environmental Council Watershed and Restoration Project Manager Sam West said, "This is part of a greater restoration project that will improve the conditions of Lytle Creek while also creating an opportunity to work together as a community. One of the best things we can do to ensure the viality of a creek is planting trees along the creek bank - and this is exactly what we will do together!"
West concluded, "Show up ready to plant! This is an open invitation, all ages event. The Council will provide all the tools and supplies you need, though volunteers are encouraged to bring their own if they'd like. Dress for the weather! The Council will also provide some snacks, coffee, and water."
Volunteers need to meet at Jennings and Ayers at 9:00 o'clock Saturday morning, November 11th. That's at 820 South Church Street.
