Friends of Plant Park president Sunny Endicott, left, speaks at the dedication of new park benches Tuesday afternoon. The installation of the benches is the start of a long-term master plan to restore the part to its original splendor when Henry B. Plant opened his hotel in 1891. Hyde Park residents Kay Dyal, seated, and her husband, Jake, dedicated this bench in memory of Jake's mother, Juliet McCall Dyal. The Friends of Plant Park will host its annual fundraiser, GreenFest 2003, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. March 29 and 30 at the park.
