Arbor Day was celebrated Monday in Lexington, a Tree City USA for 29 straight years and counting.

A fourth grade class from Central Elementary school helped plant a tree in the village square. Two other trees were planted at the skate park.

Mayor Gene Parkison says planting trees is an important part of keeping Lexington beautiful. The special guest was Ed Harpster, one of the village's most senior of citizens. He turns 100 June 4.

The trees were donated by Timothy Hilterman of Modern Woodmen of America insurance and financial planning company.
