St. George Exchange Club plants trees for City
St. George, UT, February 7, 2011 — Members of St. George Exchange Club gave up a portion of their Saturday, February 5 - a total of 21 man (and woman) hours - to plant over 35 trees along the walking trail at the Bloomington Hills North Park. Proceeds were raised and given to the city to purchase the trees by the St. George Exchange Club at the end of last year.
The event was a little early for Earth Day but perfectly timed to coincide with National Weatherman's Day - and the weatherman did not disappoint. Mother Nature cooperated, delivering a warmer-than-usual early February morning for the hard work of digging holes and positioning the over 35 6 ft. tall (mostly) elm trees. It was a beautiful day to plant trees and enjoy our beautiful surroundings. Plans are in the works for members of the St. George Exchange Club to plant more trees this coming April, in celebration of Arbor Day, a day set aside since 1872 for planting and caring for trees!
