5th Graders at Malabar Elementary were treated to a special assembly Friday afternoon. Representatives from the Shade Tree Commission gave a brief presentation about the importance of recognizing Arbor Day year-round.

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.
