You are invited to the 3rd Community Connection Day, on July 16 at Questa Municipal Park. This day of intergenerational service and community celebration is the culmination of our Memorial Grove tree fund drive. More trees at the park will provide shade and wind protection for our kids (and all of us who enjoy the park), and improve habitat for our birds and pollinators.
Starting at 9 am, volunteers will plant the trees. Midday, a community lunch will be served, and renowned puppeteer Cristina Masolivar will present her outdoor, hilarious-to-all-ages puppet show Flamencos. There will be games too: basketball, volleyball, horseshoes, and more! Come celebrate the heart of summer at the park!
With each monthly Community Connection Day, a diverse group of us come together to improve our public spaces. Come connect with friends, make new ones, and envision together what we want for our community!
The Memorial Grove is also a meaningful way to honor loved ones, and you can still have a tree planted for a $100 donation. Contributions of any amount are appreciated For info about the tree fundraiser and making donations, call Laura Vallejos: (575) 635-2934.
