FRIENDS OF SHOLLENBERGER COMMUNITY BENCH DEDICATION MARCH 6 MONDAY 4:30 PM
Shollenberger Park South path
Friends of Shollenberger Community Bench
Now installed on the south path of Shollenberger Park
Over 40 citizens, companies, and non-profit organizations donated
funds to install this commodious bench:
Camelbak, Alvarado Street Bakery, and Azure Town Homes have
supported the community's efforts to preserve and protect
Shollenberger Park from the beginning.
Heritage Salvage designed and built the bench of old-growth redwood
and donated it to the community.
The bench commemorates the community’s efforts to challenge the Dutra
asphalt factory proposal, and the lifetime commitment of Bill Kortum
to preserve open space, which he called “The Commons”, an asset that
belongs to us all.
All are invited to attend the dedication of the bench on site at
Shollenberger Park on March 6, Monday, at 4:30 PM. Lucy Kortum will be
present to hear community leaders appreciate Bill and Lucy’s lifelong
commitment to our environment.
A fundraiser Dine - Out will follow at Pub Republic to gather
together and raise funds to continue our efforts to save Shollenberger
from the proposed Dutra Asphalt factory's impacts.
