Additional info on park adoptions

       Follow-ups to the Westside Pioneer article July 8 about people adopting parks and trails on the Westside…
  • At Blunt Park… The flower beds have been upgraded with the help of about $300 from a memorial fund that was established upon the death of C. Harry Blunt Jr. in June.
           His widow, Sandy Blunt, said she worked with park adopter Sherry Bennett to plant the flowers.
           Mrs. Blunt hopes to do more work in the future, using fund donations. “I'm really excited about it,” she said. “I felt I really wanted to do something at that park because it has the family name.”
  • At the West Middle School “Backyard Park,” Cub Scout Pack 24 recently became the adopter.
  • The city is still hoping to find adopters for Bott, Gold Camp, Pike and Pioneer parks.
