Leavenworth Arbor Day celebration to honor
late black history teacher, leader
As part of its annual Arbor Day celebration, the City of Leavenworth and Richard Allen Cultural Center and Museum will plant a tree in honor of its former director, Phyllis Bass, 11 a.m. Friday April 27 at the museum, 412 Kiowa Street.
Bass was instrumental in building the Buffalo Soldier Monument on Fort Leavenworth in 1992 and the opening of the Richard Allen Cultural Center and Museum the same year. Bass served as RACC director from its opening until her retirement in 2014. She also coordinated a tutoring program for children at the museum. Bass passed away in 2017.
A flowering redbud will be planted on the front lawn of the Richard Allen Cultural Center. Members of the community are invited to attend and will be invited to assist in planting the new tree.
Arbor Day was created in 1872 for the purpose of highlighting the importance of trees. Trees prevent topsoil erosion, reduce heating and cooling costs, provide a habitat for wildlife, produce oxygen and are a renewable resource for paper and wood. Trees increase a city’s property values and beautify our community.
The Leavenworth Parks and Recreation Department has a Legacy Tree Program for loves ones to plant a tree in honor of an individual or group. For more information about the program, contact the Parks Department, (913) 651-2203.
