The United Family Makes Initial Donation for Paul McCartney Oak

United Supermarkets

An area supermarket chain has committed the initial donation for a tree commemorating a notable singer’s visit to Lubbock.

The United Family announced that it is providing the initial donation of $1,000 for the “McCartney Oak,” to be planted in the Buddy and Maria Elena Holly Plaza.

The plaza, located at 19th Street and Buddy Holly Avenue, contains the Buddy Holly statue and the West Texas Walk of Fame.

The tree is to be planted in commemoration of Paul McCartney’s request to perform a concert in Lubbock, as McCartney is a fan of Buddy Holly.

“Given proper care, the tree – like the legacies of McCartney and Holly – will ‘Not Fade Away,’” said Lubbockite Randy Christian, who suggested the McCartney Oak at the May 8th meeting of the Lubbock City Council.

McCartney will perform one of two concerts in Texas in Lubbock on June 14th at the United Supermarkets Arena.

The United Family says that at least $3,000 is needed for the effort, which will include the planting of a multi-trunk red oak, concrete bench, drip water line to the tree, and a marker commemorating the event. All contributions are tax deductible.

Anyone interested in making a donation may make it out to:
