Ernie and Becky Burkett of Shannon’s Farms donated five young pecan trees to our 2018 Sunset & Stars BBQ silent auction. Long-time supporter, Dr. Nathan Hodges, bought one in support of the RCOSA’s efforts to raise money for projects within Rockwall County that can promote trails, parks and open spaces. Today was planting day at Dr. Hodges’ home in McLendon-Chisholm. Thank you to Dr. Hodges for supporting RCOSA and to Shannon’s Farms for providing the young pecan trees to beautify our land!
This email to the Open Space Alliance just in from the City of Fate:
Thanks for continuing to challenge us to implement the Open Space & Trails plan.
In Fate, we adopted a new Park Dedication fee last year. All the County Open Space & Trails Plan elements were included within our city limits along with trail and park improvements from our Parks Master Plan. First projects this year are the new Fitness court (https://www.cityoffate.com/301/Fitness-Court )and likely some park land acquisition on our south side for a community park.
Congratulations to our neighbors who have incorporated elements from the Rockwall County Open Space Master Plan into their Parks Master Plan.
The rain is forecasted to end early this afternoon in plenty of time for our Sunset & Stars BBQ event! See you all at 6:30pm at Summerfield at Tate Farms.
