Young reader's tree to be saved

July 19, 2012

Jenny Waldrep, 9, of Poteau, is pleased her reading tree will not be lost to progress.

A week ago a young girl placed a sign on an old Oak tree behind her family's business pleaded for the tree to be saved during the construction of the new Patrick Lynch Public Library.
Having made her plea public and gaining the attention of the city and the construction company, she was soon rewarded with the knowledge her tree would remain.
"I encourage people to speak out, do things and feel free," said Jenny. "It what freedom means. I am really happy they are saving the tree."
Jenny spends many hours reading under the shade-providing tree and hopes to see benches placed around the tree for other readers.
