Chicago Road Parkway Tree Partnership
The City of Chicago Heights, the Lions Club and the Chicago Heights Park District, partnered and planted 27 trees along Chicago Road through the Parkway Tree Partnership program.
The partners on this project gathered to assist with the planting of the first tree. Though they hoisted shovels in the spirit of the event, they left the technicalities to the contractor to dig the holes and plant the trees! Chicago Heights Park District Superintendent Frank Perez, and Lions Club members Mike Reagan, Rich Duncan, Nancy Baker, and Theresa Yauger joined the spirit of the day by visiting with the planting crew and viewing the trees before planting. The City looks forward to "branching" out again on other "fruitful" efforts to "spruce" up the city landscape...GO TREES!!!
