Children are invited to participate in an Arbor Day Celebration with local leaders at 5:30 p.m. on Friday, April 30, at Wilson Park near the pool entrance.
The children will help plant a tree while Mayor Jeff Sanner reads a city proclamation. The mayor and children will be joined by other City Council and City Beautiful Commission members. Children in scouts can earn a tree planting patch for their participation.
“Typically, dozens of local children, including those from area scout troops, come to the event. Of course, last year was a little different but, we’ll gather this year in a safe, socially-distanced manner to plant the tree,” said Parks Director Christian Mattingly.
This will be the City of West Carrollton’s 32nd year as a Tree City USA member. Participation in the Tree City USA program requires that the city performs tree care programs, enacts a community tree ordinance, funds a community forestry program, and celebrates Arbor Day with a community ceremony.
