Trees Planted in Memory of Beryl Ragas


With assistance from SOUL (Sustaining our Urban Landscape), Old Algiers Main Street Corporation "honored" one its community leaders by planting a row of trees along the public right of way in historic Old Algiers.

Beryl Ragas, who died on November 3, 2016, was a dedicated volunteer and stalwart supporter of "greening" the commercial corridors of Old Algiers in an effort to create a welcoming atmosphere for residents, businesses and visitors.

Sixteen Sweetbay Magnolia trees were planted along the sidewalk on Newton Street between Atlantic Avenue and Thayer Street, along with some live oaks at the nearby Holy Name of Mary Cemetery.

While this will be the last planting until fall, OAMSC will continue to raise funds to place more trees along the commercial corridors of Old Algiers, and all donations are tax deductible. You are invited to donate to the effort. Each tree costs $120, but any amount of donation is welcome. Mail to PO Box 740181, NOLA 70174.
