On March 10, 2018, the Rotary Club of Allen Sunrise planted thirty-six (36) trees in honor of the current members of the Club and members that have recently passed away. The Club purchased the trees with the assistance of the City of Allen and the Allen Parks and Recreation Department. The tree varieties included redbuds, Mexican white oaks, live oaks, cedar elms, Princeton elms, Chinese pistachios and pecans. They were planted in the playground area at the new Spirit Park. Allen Spirit Park is a proposed 75 acre community park with 25 acres being kept as natural areas. Phase I of the park will include a lighted adult softball complex, multi-use fields, nature trails, a playground and restroom facilities. The park is currently under construction. Joining current members of the Club in planting trees in honor of members who recently passed away were the families of John Sprague and Chuck Williams
