Barb's Bench & Trees

In Remembrance of Barbara S. Lindenbaum

CRPR is pleased to recognize the contributors to the CRPR Gifts-For-Parks Program to provide an appropriate remembrance for Barbara S. Lindenbaum at Spring Creek Park.  The contributions totaled $1,246, which enabled the planting of two Remembrance Trees (Japanese Tree Lilacs) and the installation of a park bench with a cast bronze plaque. A dedication ceremony was held as part of a Senior Center Picnic at the park on Tuesday, 6 July 2010. The bench overlooks one of the popular wading areas of Spring Creek. Barbara served as the Centre Region Senior Center Director for 23 years, 2 months - from 7 Jul 1986 through 1 Sep 2009.  She passed away on 11 Sep 2009. The Center is now known as the Centre Region Active Adult Center.
