Benbow Park

Hi friends!  So many great things are happening at Camp Serbin.  Since I joined the Mainstreet Buckeye Coalition I feel so rooted in my community.  The first task I was assigned was Benbow Veterans Park.  This project really excited me because it is on Buckeye's Mainstreet.  I chose to be on this Coalition especially because I fell in love with this town when I started my historical research for the Town of  Buckeye for the Park and Ride project.   Here are some photos of Buckeye. 

Before you see these photos I suggest you put on your cowboys boots, get a well worn camp shirt *pocket could be ripped* and listen to Hugo Montenegro, The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. 

The watercolor is for the Park design on Mainstreet.  The design of the Benbow Park has been a joint effort of all the Coalition members.  I want to thank Alice Dryer for sharing old photos of the Benbow Auto repair shop that used to be on the site in the 1930's.  I want to thank Ron Noble and Jay Broadbent for sharing their hopes and dreams for this site.  This park idea has been kicked around for a while in this Town.  I feel honored to be a part of something so special.

The coalition has asked Serbin Studio to prepare a presentation board, shown at the top of this blog.  The board will be on display at the Town of Buckeye's Old Fashioned Fourth of July Celebration at Youngker High School, 3000 South Apache Road
Buckeye, Arizona 85326.

I hope to see you there!
