For the Jaycee Park CIP #F-000758, the Parks Program Manager is getting the design teams under contract.

Trees for Houston will be in the park on January 25 from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. supervising volunteers who will be pruning and trimming about 30 of the Seamist trees. To help, email Darlene at dwayt@comcast.net.

Boy Scout Troop 604 will be in the park in January and April 2014 cleaning the splash pad and de-littering the grounds, the date and time will be posted on FB Friends of Jaycee Park. For info, contact Ed Sherwood at e1sherwood@bop.gov or David Jackson at david-a-jackson@att.net.

Give Green in 2014
If your 2014 charitable giving includes giving “green,” consider Houston Parks Board for Jaycee Park at www. houstonparksboard.org. Click on Projects, Past Projects, Jaycee Park, Donate, choose Jaycee Park from the dropdowns and go from there. Private funds were largely responsible for the renovation and shade canopies, as I’m sure most of you know because so many of you and your civic club contributed, and private funds are being used for maintenance needs that public funds do not cover. For example, this past year, the private fund replaced the splash pad bench coating that cracked and fractured, replaced a damaged donor plaque, paid for pruning and landscaping of the crepe myrtles and some trimming of the Seamist trees. For questions about this fund, contact Trent Rondot of Houston Parks Board at (713) 942- 8500 or trent@houstonparksboard.org.

Snow Day in Jaycee Park sponsored by Carolyn Bryant was Dec. 7. It was “iffy” because of the weather but we went ahead with the event and had a good crowd in spite of the extremely cold weather.
