5th Graders at Malabar Elementary were treated to a special assembly today. Representatives from the Shade Tree Commission gave a brief presentation to students about the importance of Arbor Day.

The purpose of the shade tree commission is to make sure we take care of our urban forests. One of their goals; educating our youth. Each student received a pine tree seedling to plant and care for.

The 250 seedlings were donated by a private donor, after funds for the program were cut. The Shade Tree Commission, as part of its annual work plan, continues to provide education to our local schools as a part of their annual arbor day celebration.
