Thanks to the generosity of TreesLouisville Executive Board member Charlie Marsh, Gilmore Lane Elementary now has new trees in the front of the school. Mr. Marsh has underwritten the entire planting of 70 trees. This is just the beginning! Phase two will be installed in Autumn of 2017. The school will also be receiving some help with fundraising for new playground equipment to go along with their new trees.
On November 21st, a press conference was held with Mayor Fischer and the Community Foundation of Louisville at Gilmore Lane to announce that TreesLouisville had become the recipient of a $1,000,000 Matching Grant. Students from the school helped to plant a blackgum tree at the front of the building.
