Exchange Celebrates Arbor Day 2009
Nine members of St. George Exchange Club gave up a portion of their Saturday, April 25 - a total of 15 man (and woman) hours - to plant trees along the walking trail on Riverside Drive. The event was a little late for Earth Day (Wednesday, April 22), but perfectly timed to kick off National Volunteer Week (April 27 - May 3) and to celebrate Arbor Day, a day set aside since 1872 for planting and caring for trees! Mother Nature cooperated, delivering a cooler-than-usual late April day for the hard work of digging holes and positioning 25 6 ft. tall (mostly) pine trees in 50 gallon tubs.
