Arbor Day - 2022

Arbor Day 2022 has come and gone. It was a very successful day with trees and saplings being given away to the many attendees. There were several helpful volunteers who were much appreciated. Smokey was on site and very popular with everyone. There were some nice door prizes, many of which were donated by Cedar Creek Nursery. Tom's Traveling Coffee and the Coca Cola Music Truck provided refreshments and entertainment.

This page will be updated in early 2023. Until then, please enjoy a few pictures from February 26th, 2022.
