On Thursday, Jan. 19th our club with Windermere Tree Board had an annual Arbor Day tree planting near Windermere Town Hall. It was a beautiful, sunny, and warm day and began with a Windermere Police honor guard to present the colors.

Then, the students of Windermere Union Preschool presented a musical program, help plant our oak tree and then had some cookies and apple juice provided and served by our club. After their snack, they saw a demo by professional tree climbers.
