Arbor Day Is Here! [VIDEO]
Let me be extremely forthright. Still have an old-fashioned “paper” calendar hanging on the fridge. By the end of the month, it looks as though it was attacked by a 5 year old learning how to fingerpaint. That being said, happened to notice (as I do each year) that itty bitty print at the bottom of the number “27”; and today – is Arbor Day!
WHAT day is it? For the first time in my life I now know that Arbor Day is a holiday in which individuals and groups are encouraged to plant – Trees. And, this holiday is rich in history since it dates back to 1872!
I’m trying to figure out why a 140 year old holiday isn’t getting me a day off work.
By the way, if you have a child aged 2 to 12, take them over to Grace Dunn Park (200 Mott Drive) today between 5-6:30 p.m. The cost is $2 for tree seedlings, BUT you will need to register at the City of Lufkin Parks & Recreation Department prior to arriving at the event.
“Tree” you later!
