The Canandaigua Rotary Club sort of had Arbor Day in the bag. Jack Kellogg with the Rotary sent in this photo and description of the event. Club members ordered and then bagged some 900 saplings. The saplings came grouped in boxes, then had to be carefully separated, then carefully put individually into small poly bags with a scoop of damp mulch.
The poly bags were then put into paper shopping bags one for each teacher in the Universal Pre-K through the second grade, which included about 50 to 60 teachers, including the primary at St. Mary’s.
It was somewhat of a messy job, but the stories that came out while working on the project were fun and interesting, and as seen in the photo no-one got smeared.
