LOOKING BACK: Fond memories of Fircrest in bloom

It was a pleasant surprise to see the Looking Back photo (TNT, 5-24) of the 1949 Fircrest cherry tree planting. I was the little girl in the photo, and I remember that day.

My mother and most of the other women were the current presidents of the various Fircrest garden clubs. Obtaining and planting the trees along Regents Boulevard was a major project of the clubs that year, and the club members were all very proud of achieving that goal.

My three older siblings and I enjoyed growing up in Fircrest, and still enjoy the cherry trees, especially when in bloom.
