Nassau Bay Garden Club celebrates Arbor Day
An Arbor Day celebration led by the Nassau Bay Garden Club featured city Public Works Department employees planting a cedar elm, poetry and an explanation of Arbor Day.
The event was held Jan. 27, with the tree being planted along a running path. Also discussed were the benefits of the cedar elm, which, according to a press release, is an adaptable shade tree with excellent drought tolerance.
The program, which was attended by about 35 people, was planned and led by Donna Croston, a member of the Garden Club. City Councilmember Ron Swofford read an Arbor Day Proclamation. Kindergarten students from St. Thomas the Apostle School sang a song about trees.
