Volunteers plant trees at Camp Blount

 

Fayetteville-Lincoln County’s volunteer spirit was alive and on display on March 13, 2021, as a small army gathered at the Camp Blount Historic Site to plant some 116 eastern red cedar trees around the park’s perimeter behind Long John Silver’s and Hardee’s. Volunteers included CBHSA board members, Fayetteville High School football players, the Fayetteville High School Beta Club, Lincoln County High School basketball players, Riverside Christian Academy students, Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts, and several local citizens. The CBHSA would like to express our deepest gratitude to these volunteers for all their help and support. The association was overwhelmed by the presence and engagement by local youth and their energy and smiling faces made a rainy day much brighter.

Trees may be sponsored at a donation of $70 each. If anyone would like to participate in tree sponsorship, please send a check with sponsorship information to the CBHSA mailing address at P.O. Box 1422 Fayetteville, TN 37334. Or, if you live locally and would like to make a donation in person, please visit Randy Delap, CBHSA President, at the Register of Deeds office located inside the Lincoln County Courthouse.
