CHEYENNE – The Cheyenne City Council will hold a tree planting ceremony at 1 p.m. on Friday, April 14 at Romero Park, 1317 Parsley Blvd., in memory of the late Ward I Councilman Jimmy Valdez.

He was then appointed to fill a vacant unexpired term on the City Council in March 2004 and from that point forward continued to serve through September of 2015.
The public is invited to the event.
