Upon reading the Friday, Oct. 26, newspaper I was very pleased with the article about the planting of an oak tree as a memorial dedicated to a very fine man who did so much for our community, captioned “Deeply Rooted Tribute”, honoring Chuck Smith.
The Great Bend Tree Board, under the leadership of Charles Waknitz, needs to be commended for their initiative in fulfilling this honor bestowed upon this worth recipient. Church truly was dedicated to assisting and improving our community any way he could, In this case, informing us about the care of the trees, which ultimately enhance our city. He would feel honored to have the committee feel that he was worthy of this recognition.
Thank you, Great Bend Tree Board, for this tribute for all of us to reflect upon in Chuck’s memory.
