|Friends of Lake Hefner starts the year with a gift of 80 trees for the lake...and other news|
We have been talking about an initial planting of 40 trees for the first phase of our project, but the response from lake volunteers and contributors has made it possible to start with twice that number. If your organization would like to help on this project with volunteers or a small donation, it will make a huge difference to the efficiency and timing of our watering effort. Contact us by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. Remember, donations are deductible.
We plan to have the ground breaking ceremony and the planting during the third week in February. Our ground breaking will be an opportunity to thank in person, the City Council, Water Trust, Parks and Planning commissioners and staff who made all this possible. The exact date and time need to be coordinated with Oklahoma City so as many of these people can attend as possible. Please watch your e-mail for the date and notify your members so all of Lake Hefner's friends can participate.
Saturday, May 2, 2009 has been selected as the date for the Annual Lake Hefner Cleanup. Please put that date on your calendar and bring your family friends out to help us clean up around Lake Hefner. You will be hearing more about events planned for this day soon.
Two City projects were discussed at the Friends of Lake Hefner January meeting. The first is a long planned modification of the fishing pier north of Municipal Harbor which complies with the Lake Hefner Plan and is supported by the FOLH board. The second is to extend fiber optic cable from the fire station north to the communications tower and the layout stakes are easy to see. The City reports this project will not interfere with, or pose a hazard to the trail. Thanks to Gordon Murray (HPYC) for attending the OCWUT meeting.
Let us hear from you about your ideas and concerns for our lake.
