Green Trees Early Learning Center Dedicates Playground to Long Time Pike County Bar Association Member

Green Trees Early Learning Center, Inc. (previously Good Shepherd Child Care Center)
celebrated its new name and a beautiful playground on November 10, 2017. The playground
was funded in part by a gift from the Pike County Bar Association in memory of long time
member and local attorney, Sanford “Sandy” D. Beecher, Jr. Sally Beecher, was on site to
dedicate the play area in honor of her late husband. Rebecca Lindsey, Chair of the Green Trees
Board of Directors, announced the Sandy Beecher Memorial playground: “It is wonderful that
the Bar Association chose this way of remembering Sandy. Generations of young people from
our community will benefit.”

At the ceremony, Green Trees also announced a new Scholarship Fund to assist families in need
beginning in early 2018. The Scholarship Fund “will allow us to award full or partial scholarships
to children with demonstrated financial need, when the families do not otherwise qualify for
assistance, or for whom federal or state assistance is insufficient,” said Jenni Hamill, Green
Trees board member and chair of the Scholarship Committee. Green Trees accepts and
considers scholarships on a rolling basis so long as scholarship funds are available. Inquiries
should be directed to Green Trees Director Cera Alber for referral to the Scholarship
Green Trees’ mission is to serve children of all backgrounds; to cultivate strong roots in
education; and to open doors to the wonders of the world around us. For more information
