In brief: Trees planted in heart shape

Thu., Oct. 24, 2013

NORTHWEST – A heart-shaped tree park will be planted in Friendship Park, 631 E. Greta Ave., on Saturday at 10 a.m.

The planting is the idea of 9-year-old Holly VanVoorhis, who designed the planting when she was 7, and is now seeing the trees being planted with the help of Susie Forest’s Nancy MacKerrow and the Spokane Urban Forestry Department.

The eight trees are dedicated to organizations that serve children, such as Vanessa Behan Crisis Nursery, Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts and the Spokane Guilds’ School. Visit
