Fancher Creek

A barren ditch-bank was converted into a tree-lined parkway in November 1993 through the leadership of volunteers Al Hammerstrom, Del Runyon, Don McCall and Mel Kazarian, along with a number of other neighborhood volunteers. The group spent several years planning the project and securing financial support, permission from the County and the Fresno Irrigation District.

 

After the the irrigation system was installed and the trees planted, the group organized as The Sunnyside-Fancher Creek Tree Project.  The first co-chairmen were Al Hammerstrom and Del Runyon with Mel Kazarian succeeding them several years later. The project committee has provided necessary services such as irrigating, pruning, trash removal and weed control.

 

Berge Bulbulian took over project management in 1996 and continued until his retirement in February, 2011, although he remains the committee secretary. Paul Starkevich has succeeded him.

 

Mel has moved out of the area so his position has been taken by David Powers who serves as Treasurer as well.

 

Mel’s leaving the area is a serious loss to the Sunnyside area since he played a vital role often providing weed chemicals, other supplies as well as labor for maintenance of the trees.  The neighborhood owes him a debt of gratitude.

 

Continued support by the community is vital to maintaining the trees on the Fancher Creek Parkway.
