We wanted you to know we are collecting donations for a bench in Hemphill Park that will honor Roger Binkley who died on May 3rd. Roger spearheaded the successful Aldridge Place Historic District campaign. He was a champion of the historic gateway columns in Aldridge Place and helped protect our park and waterway.
The plaque on the bench will read:
Roger Binkley (1947-2021)
“Have a seat, friend, and
tell me how you are…”
That saying is how Roger often greeted visitors and seems very appropriate for this bench.
If you would like to make a donation for the Roger Binkley Memorial Bench, please send or drop off checks payable to NUNA at Janet Beinke’s house: 207 West 33rd Street, Austin Texas, 78705. We will appreciate any donation, large or small!
