Community invited to help dedicate new park 11 am October 6
SIMONTON, TX…Two years ago, along with his wife Joyce and daughter Laura, Dr. Harold Daily of Houston donated more than 68 acres of land for a park in north Fort Bend County. A native of Simonton, Dr. Daily provided the land for the specific purpose of establishing a park and nature preserve, to a rapidly-growing county in need of recreational and green space. The park will be officially named the Abe and Lizzie Daily Park in honor of Dr. Daily’s parents.
According to Fort Bend County officials, plans for the park include at least four baseball diamonds, two soccer fields and a nature preserve along land bordering the Brazos River.
On Saturday, October 6, members of the community are invited to join the Daily family and friends for the official dedication of the Abe & Lizzie Daily Park.
The ceremony will take place at 11 am at 4026 Nails Road, Simonton,Tx.
There will be a short presentation followed by light refreshments.
Abe and Lizzie Daily emigrated from Eastern Europe in the early 1900’s in order to escape persecution and have a better life in America. They married in 1915 and lived in Simonton, where Abe farmed the land and operated the Daily Brothers General Store. Abe and Lizzie Daily raised five children, Sylvia, Robbie, Harold, Abe Jr. and Dorothy in Simonton and were known throughout the area for their kindness and generosity to those in need.
Four generations of the Daily family will be on hand for the event. The family hopes that members of the community will join them at 11 am on Saturday, October 6.
