Naglee Park Beautification Committee
The Naglee Park Beautification Committee is dedicated to improving and maintaining the beauty of Naglee Park's public spaces through the work of neighborhood volunteers. Meetings are held once a month, and business is conducted by email via a Yahoo! list. We organize Coffee in the Park, where neighbors and friends meet and chat over coffee and pastries each spring.
Funds for the Beautification Committee are provided through the CCA and donations. To donate to the Beautification Committee or specifically to one of our ongoing projects, make a check payable to CCA. In the Notes line, write Beautification and, if your donation is for a specific project, the project name. For example, Beautification, Trees. Send your check to:
P.O. Box 90038
San Jose, CA 95109-3038
Currently, the Beautification Committee manages several projects, which are described below. Volunteers are welcome. To learn more about the Beautification Committee, contact Chairperson John Turner, firstname.lastname@example.org. To volunteer or learn more about a project, contact the Project Coordinator.
