Name the new city park after Norma Jean Dierk | LETTER TO THE EDITOR

We understand that the city of Marysville has acquired the property that was once the tree farm belonging to the Dashiell family. This will be a welcome addition to our city parks.

A real estate acquisition like this takes a great deal of work. Thank you to Norma Jean Dierk for recognizing the potential of the property years ago, and to everyone who helped in the long process of getting the needed grants approved.

One important piece of our community identity is an awareness of the history of our shared spaces. In order to recognize this history, we feel the city should commemorate the original owners by naming the new park after the Dashiell family.

Bruce and Margot Tipton
