Community Celebrates New Trees for Adoue Park

Community members gathered at Adoue Park at 2 p.m. Saturday to celebrate the replacement of 17 hurricane-damaged trees in the East-end public park.

The City of Galveston and the Galveston Island Tree Conservancy gave unanimous support for McCoy’s Building Supply’s plan to restore the park, which included a $10,000 donation of new trees. The plan provides for maximum shade for playground equipment used by neighboring Rosenberg Elementary School yet leaves open areas traditionally used by the community for park activities. The trees were planted on December 2.

“Our company is so proud to have been founded on the Island, and we are excited about helping Galveston's recovery through this special beautification project,” McCoy’s CEO Brian McCoy said. “McCoy's is here to stay, and we are honored to be a part of the rebuilding process."

McCoy’s also announced the winners of their tree giveaway promotion. Three Galveston Island residents won the opportunity to work with Tom’s Thumb Nursery and Landscaping and a $500 credit for trees to be planted on their private property. The winners are Leigh Cowart, Diane Moore and Carolina Rabago.

The 83-store retailer has deep ties to Galveston Island, opening their first location here in 1927. CEO Brian McCoy is a Galveston native.

“As the fourth generation of McCoys to be in the business, our family owes much to the city of Galveston for allowing our successful start in business 82 years ago,” said McCoy’s Director of Field Support, Meagan McCoy Jones.
