Richard and Helga Morrow have been active and energetic promoters of the Acorn Hill children’s area in Lake Roland. Richard passed away in August before he saw their dream realized. To honor Richard, his friends and neighbors presented a contribution to Lake Roland Nature Council to assist in the development of Acorn Hill. Helga and Dick’s neighbors also presented Helga with a letter to commemorate their donation (reproduced below).

Your neighbors wanted to find a way to honor you and your husband, Dick’s memory in a significant way that reflected your personal commitment to our neighborhood, park and community.
Over the years, we have watched you and your husband, Dick, be team captains for so many stream and community cleanups. Together you made the commitment to get out there in all kinds of weather, sometimes with others, sometimes on your own- doing the truly “heavy lifting” that it takes to keep our communities clean, healthy, and enjoyable for all.
Your dedication to these efforts and what appears to have been for both of you a deep love of children and nature made this gift a natural one to contribute to. We are happy today to donate a gift of $750 to the Acorn Hill Children’s Park as part of the Robert E. Lee Nature Council’s dedication to make our park a place that is welcoming for children to play and explore the natural world.
