Arbor Day in Veteran’s Park, Friday, January 20th, 3:30 p.m.
We invite everyone to attend Arbor Day to share their commitment to environmental stewardship on Friday, January 20th at 3:30 p.m., at Veteran’s Park on the corner of 54th Ave. S. and 31st St. S. with a special tree planting. The spot was picked to replace a Laurel Oak that had to be removed this past year and to dedicate the day in remembrance of Roy Thompson, who named the park, Veteran’s Park.
The Gulfport Recreation Division have included the children from the School Year Child Care Program to read excerpts, the Gulfport Teen Council will provide refreshments and a new Sweetgum tree will be planted on Gulfport Beach west of the volleyball courts. Free Sweetgum and Red Maple seedlings will be available to the guests who attend. Special guests include Gulfport Food Forest and Gulfport Gecko Garden answering any of your gardening questions. Join the City of Gulfport, as we celebrate the life of trees and their importance to the environment. For more information, please call 893-1118. All are welcome.
