First Community Planting Day Announced for Radium Springs
Synovus/SB&T to host first Grow Albany Community Planting Day
In January, two storms hit the Albany area leaving beautiful scenic landscapes, like Tift Park and Radium Springs, in ruin. In response to these damaging storms, Grow Albany was established to replant and distribute trees to these affected areas. Less than a year after the storms, Grow Albany and community partner Synovus/SB&T announced the first Community Planting Day scheduled for Saturday, November 4 at Radium Springs Overlook, 2501 Radium Springs Road, from 9 a.m. to noon.
Synovus/SB&T was one of the first Grow Albany partners to come on board in January after the initial storm. Synovus/SB&T president Pam Simmons said “After seeing the devastation left behind by the January storms and the effects these storms had on our community, we knew it was important not only to help restore the community esthetically, but physically and mentally as well. By partnering with Grow Albany to host the first Community Planting Day, Synovus/SB&T will help grow both trees and community pride for future generations.”
