City looking for volunteers to beautify Father McNaboe Park

LAREDO, TX (KGNS) - Despite the rain we are seeing outside, the City of Laredo is trying to encourage the community to enjoy the great out doors.

The City of Laredo and District Seven member George Altgelt are inviting you to join them as they add a little more green to the scenery at father McNaboe Park.

The tree planting ceremony will take place this February 8th at the park.

Doors will open at 7:30 for registration and the actual planting will start at 9 a.m.

Councilmen Altgelt explains this will be the city's first ever citrus grove.

"We're gonna have the planting of the City of Laredo's first ever citrus grove. So we're gonna have tangerines, mandarins, lime, oranges, grapefruits. So this tree planting is a little different, ya know. In the sense that it's very shade orientated, cause we know in south Texas if you don't have shade it's not a fun walk."

The first 100 people to sign up for the tree planting event will win a free Star Wars baby Yoda t-shirt that celebrates the event.
