On the Yelm City Council Agenda tonight:
“NOW, THEREFORE I, Ron Harding, Mayor of the City of Yelm, do hereby proclaim April 26, 2013 as Arbor Day and the Month of April 2013 as Arbor Month
and I invite the Council and Citizens of Yelm to our Arbor Day Celebration at 11:00 am April 26, 2013 at the Yelm City Park.
FURTHER, I urge all citizens to plant trees to gladden the heart and promote the well-being of this and future generations.
Signed this 26 day of March 2013”
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.
Won’t you donate a tree to our town by sending a check to Yelm City Hall for Yelm’s Tree Fund!
