The city of Santa Clarita is now accepting names to be included as part of the 2019 additions to the Youth Grove in Central Park, with a due date of June 30 for nominations.
The Youth Grove is in Central Park, located at 27150 Bouquet Canyon Road, Saugus 91350.
Those interested have the opportunity to fill out a release form in order to be included in this year’s additions.
The Youth Grove is a grassroots effort supported by the city and the Blue Ribbon Task Force. It is a memorial that consists of tree stumps adorned with plaques, and a central stone platform.
The Youth Grove, which currently includes 107 names, is dedicated to Santa Clarita youth aged 24 and younger who have lost their lives in traffic-related incidents.
The memorial is a way for the Santa Clarita community to remember the young lives that have been lost, and also to reflect upon the tragic consequences that can result from drinking and driving, and reckless and distracted driving.
By providing a place for commemoration and reflection, the city hopes to raise awareness about the importance of safe driving and encourage a more mindful and responsible thought process before getting behind the wheel.
This year, the city will host the annual Evening of Remembrance event at the Youth Grove on Tuesday, September 17. The evening will include a Walk of Remembrance, beginning at 6:45 p.m. The names that are submitted by June 30 will be included in the grove in time for the event.
For more information about adding a name to the Youth Grove, and to access the release form, visit santa-clarita.com/YouthGrove or contact Tess Simgen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
