The "MyVeteran/MyHero Tribute Tree Campaign"© was established by the Centre Region Parks & Recreation Authority in early-2014 to provide living tributes to veterans of the US Military in the three "Regional Parks" (established by the Centre Region Council of Governments) while assisting to further improve the host parks. A flyer about the campaign is available HERE (PDF). The initial site of these Tribute Trees will be Oak Hall Regional Park near Boalsburg. Future sites will include Whitehall Road Regional Park and the John Hess Softball Complex, as scheduled. For more information, please contact CRPR.

The CRPR Authority is a publicly-funded, municipal agency serving 5 municipalities since 1966. The Authority also maintains 501c3 status.
