House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-San Francisco), center, planted a magnolia tree near the main entrance of the National AIDS Memorial Grove in Golden Gate Park Saturday, June 17. Pelosi was honored for her three decades of leadership in the fight against HIV/AIDS. The tree-planting is something Pelosi does every five years; she was assisted by her granddaughter, Bella Kaufman, and grove volunteers Tom Jensen, left, and K.C. Farrell. Officials noted that the grove has surpassed 200,000 hours given by community volunteers to create and maintain the 10-acre living memorial.
