This marks the culmination of his Eagle Project in which he raised enough money to purchase a total of 37 trees, went door to door to offer a free tree to homeowners who did not have a parkway tree and rallied a team of volunteers to plant the trees.
Hank and his team of volunteers will meet at 8:00 a.m. at the staging area, Fountain Valley Fire Station # 2 at 16767 Newhope Street, before heading out into the selected neighborhoods. The two neighborhoods to receive the trees are in quadrants G3 and H3 of the City, which are located between Heil and Warner, between Euclid and Harbor.
In addition to the 29 trees being planted on Saturday, Hank raised enough money to donate four trees to both Ellis and Plavan Parks. These trees will be planted during two separate Arbor Day events scheduled for Thursday, March 10, 2016. Students from Shoreline Christian School will participate in the first event of the day at 8:30 a.m. in Ellis Park, located at 10301 Ellis Avenue, Fountain Valley. In the afternoon, parents and students from Hilltop Preschool will gather for the second event at 1:30 p.m. in Plavan Park, located at 9745 Warner Avenue, Fountain Valley.
The City of Fountain Valley thanks Hank Caprini for his generous contribution to the community and wishes him luck as he pursues the rank of Eagle Scout, Boy Scouts’ highest achievement.
