In Sun or Shadow, These Volunteers Help Make Leila'a Dramatic Entrance "Shine".
When the nearly 5,000 visitors pulled into the front entrance of the Leila Arboretum over the course of last Saturday (26 July) to attend the Leilapalooza Music Festival (30 bands on 5 outdoor stages), many "ooohed and aaahed" to the volunteers directing traffic, complimenting them on the beauty of the Arboretum's stone columned entrance and welcoming rows of flowers, plants, water pool and flowing fountain.
