A Great Way to Honor Someone

Wednesday, October 3, 2012

Rick Duval and his son, Logan, spent some quality time together at Santee’s Big Rock Park, where they relaxed on a memorial bench donated by a local resident.
You, too, can honor a friend, relative or favorite organization by donating a bench, picnic table or tree in their name at one of Santee’s city parks.

Benches and tables must conform to a standard design chosen by the city, but donors can pick from from a variety of tree species.
Park benches can be donated for $1,400. Picnic tables are $1,000. For each bench or picnic table donated, the city will install a 5-by-10-inch memorial plaque carrying the name of the person or organization being commemorated.

Trees are $100 for a 15-gallon size, $200 for a 24-inch box and $700 for a 36-inch box. Each donated tree is recognized with a brass leaf etched with the honoree’s name that is placed on a commemorative tree plaque at City Hall.
The donation covers the cost of acquisition and installation.

All donated trees, tables and benches will be maintained by the city of Santee for the duration of their useful life.
In addition to acknowledging someone you wish to remember, your contribution will support recreational opportunities and enhance Santee’s parks.

Applications can be obtained at the Community Services Department at City Hall, 10601 Magnolia Avenue, Santee, CA 92071.
You can also download the application from the city’s website.
