The City of Yelm Tree Advisory Board had their 12th annual Yelm Arbor Day celebration at 11am Friday, May 15 in Yelm City Park (First St. & Mosman).
This is a good time to remind everyone of the YELM TREE ADVISORY BOARD’S work.

Arbor Day is a nationally-celebrated observance that encourages tree planting and care.
Founded by J. Sterling Morton in Nebraska in 1872, National Arbor Day is celebrated each year on the last Friday in April.
Washington State’s Arbor Day is the second Wednesday in April.
“The National Arbor Day Foundation has published a new hardiness zone map, based on climate data from the past 15 years, that clearly shows the warming trend across the country,” quoting the National Arbor Day Foundation website.
Won’t you donate a tree to our town by sending a check to Yelm City Hall for Yelm’s Tree Fund!
As a note,
I was just looking at the members of each Yelm’s Citizen Committees in researching today’s blog entry and found one name on most of them:
Let’s do a tally:
Mr Cunningham is President-elect of the Yelm Chamber of Commerce, serves on the Yelm Planning Commission, Yelm Tree Advisory Board, Civil Service Commission, and the Yelm Parks Advisory Committee. While Mr. Cunningham’s service to the city is commendable, his being on so many of our citizen committees begs two questions:
1. Is there NOT nay other Yelm area citizen wishing to serve on these committees?
2. Is there some conflict of interest in his Chamber & Planning Commission rolls and all of these other committee posts? HMMM!
WHAT DO YOU SAY?
