For our eighth annual Arbor Day Celebration in 2017 we dedicated our Arbor Day tree in honor of a former Hometown Spirit Award recipient Sheila Ogle. With this dedication we read our Town’s Arbor Day Proclamation and celebrated our 34th year as a Tree City USA Community. This designation is awarded to us based on our investment in the management of our urban forests.
The Arbor Day foundation is the world’s largest tree-planting organization and in our community we offer citizens the opportunity to plant trees, and perform other environmental service, through our Spruce program. Since the Spruce program first began in 2009, our volunteers have planted over 10,000 trees, shrubs and plants in our community.
