Tree donated to St. Landry Memorial Park


The St. Landry Parish Memorial Park received a very special donation on Tuesday.

Bob Thibodeaux, director and founder of Acorns of Hope, donated a 15 foot Natchez White Crape Myrtle to the park. It is the first tree to be planted at the Veteran's Memorial Park.

The project began 10 years ago and is not officially open as of yet, but a dedication ceremony is being planned for Memorial Day.

The park is being designed as a place of education, hope and a place for residents in St. Landry Parish to never forget those who served our country.

A military walkway is being placed at the park and any military personnel interested in purchasing a brick to be placed on the walkway can call 337-948-3657.
