Date & Time
Sat, Sep 25 10:00 AM - 12:00 AM
The City of Lompoc Urban Forestry Division and Beautification and Appearance Commission is pleased to invite the community to an Arbor Day Celebration at Recognition Grove in River Park.
The event at 10 a.m. on Saturday, September 25, honors those who have contributed significantly to the enrichment of the Lompoc community. Arbor Day is typically held in April but was delayed this year due to COVID restrictions. Arbor Day in Lompoc is expected to be back on track again in April 2022.
The three honorees selected by the Lompoc Beautification & Appearance Commission, Victor Jordan, Patricia Nuernberg, and June Schwartz, will have trees with plaques bearing their names dedicated in honor of them in Recognition Grove. As these trees grow and mature, they become a living legacy of the esteem in which Recognition Grove honorees are held. The grove is also a way that the Lompoc community can say thank you to those who have done so much to improve the quality of life in the Lompoc Valley.
Victor Jordan is the founder and publisher of the Lompoc Vision publication and Lompoc Visitors Guide and involved community advocate.
Patricia Nuernberg is the local Toys for Tots cofounder, the Lompoc Dive Club cofounder, and a longtime community volunteer.
June Schwartz spent more than 80 years in the Lompoc Valley before she died in 2020, and volunteered for the American Red Cross for 60 years. She served as a volunteer with numerous local organizations, including the Lompoc Hospital Foundation and the Alpha Club.
