Waimea Members Honor Christine Snyder

The new plaque on Christine Snyder’s tree.

One of the first memorial trees Waimea Outdoor Circle volunteers planted in the Waimea Nature Park was to Christine Snyder, The Outdoor Circle’s arborist that was killed in the plane [United Flight 93] on September 11th in Pennsylvania.

Waimea branch members recently replaced the fading plaque with this new and larger one, which can be found at the base of a large Koai’a tree on the meadow, near the concrete bench. Members place an American flag and flowers there every September 11th and 4th of July.

For almost 15 years, Waimea branch members have volunteered their time to maintain this 10-acre public, botanical park in the heart of Waimea Town.
