Planting Trees With David Leib

From the e-mails:

State Representative David Leibowitz today announced that the first in a series of annual tree-planting initiatives will take place on Monday, May 1.

The First Annual Leibowitz Arbor Day Tree Planting, held in conjunction with the San Antonio Tress organization, will unveil 14 trees and 11 crepe myrtles.

8:50 a.m. to 10:00 a.m.

Monday, May 1

on city right-of-way between

South San West Campus, 5622 Ray Ellison Dr.

and Alan Shepard Middle School, 5558 Ellison Dr.

Leibowitz will be joined by a broad cross-section of the community and those who have donated trees.

Also attending will be Ms. Linda Hardberger, representing her husband, Mayor Phil Hardberger; City Councilman Richard Perez; Bexar Co. District Clerk Margaret Montemayor; Eloy Rosales of San Antonio Trees; State Forester Mark Peterson; and representatives of South San School District, CPS Energy, Colors of the Wind Stone Fabricators, Keep San Antonio Beautiful, and Southwest Trophy.

Sounds cool. But I gotta tell ya that the more interesting thing for me was that the e-mail was sent from I guess Kelly Fero found his new gig.
