Arbor Day 2020

Last year’s Arbor Day event at Boys Scout Camp in Baiting Hollow was a fantastic success. The teamwork and camaraderie exhibited that day is commendable. Everything they requested was completed and they were very pleased with the work that was performed and grateful for our contribution. Great Job by everyone!
