Jaycee Park Update

‘Tis the Season to be Grateful

by Darlene Wayt, Environmental Committee

The Jaycee Park porto-potty units have been approved by the Houston Parks and Recreation Department for another year.  Approved by the City but not provided by the City, the units are privately funded by the TMCC.  Thank you to the following people, businesses and groups that made designated donations to the TMCC for the units:  Craig & Gaye Hablinski; Crescendo Family Music; DeWalch Technologies; Jeff & Darlene Wayt; Jennifer Vickers & Kirk Guy; Judge Billy Ragan; Kerry McEniry; the Lazybrook Civic Club; Lesha Adams & Stefanie Marsh; Pete & Jill Davies; Silver Eagle Distributors; Timbergrove Terrace; and Wes & Viali Harris.  My apologies if I missed anyone.  Thank you to the donors who made cash donations at events and to the known donors who asked to remain anonymous.

The TMCC will be accepting donations for the porto-potty units on an ongoing basis to ensure funding for many years to come.

Thank you, also, to the following organizations for their ongoing support and maintenance of the park:  Houston Parks Board; Trees for Houston; the TMCC; and Boy Scout Troop 604.  To support the organizations that do such a good job supporting our parks, visit the websites of the first three to see how you can help.  For info about Boy Scout Troop 604, contact Scout Master Ed Sherwood at e1sherwood@yahoo.com or Assistant Scout Master David Jackson at david-a-jackson@att.net.

According to Lisa Johnson, Parks Program Manager, the Ball Field Lighting Capital Improvement Project has once again been delayed until mid-January.  An updated, accurate time schedule has been requested.  Keep checking www.timbergrove.org and www.snc-14.org; FB Jaycee Park and FB Timbergrove Manor; and our block captain system for updated information.
