Memorial to Charter Member Jonas Bassen

B-CCCC Charter Member, Jonas Bassen was fondly remembered at the Arbor Day Celebration on Saturday April 14, 2007 at Acorn Park. This open area with a beautiful walkway for strolling and plenty of benches for relaxing is located just off the intersection of Route 450 and Stoneybrook Drive. The tree lined hill remains very reminiscent of historic Bowie, long before Levitt purchased the land for development. About 50 people attended the ceremony. Arbor Day was a perfect opportunity to memorialize Jonas.
