Summary

The Ella B. Scantlebury Park was named after New Haven's first African-American and first woman City Treasurer. This year, the volunteers from this emeritus group replaced a dead cherry tree with help from Common Grounds student crew. The group also performed stewardship of existing tree beds and ensured that the park was clear of trash during their volunteer days.
