Thanks to Councilor John Orlikow we were allowed to spend up to $2,000 of a grant allocated to the park to buy some trees for the park to fill in holes where trees were dying. We hauled the trees back from Jeffries Nurseries in Portage in Roger’s truck, and had a successful planting bee on Saturday October 2nd. Thanks to everyone who helped plant the trees!
We were amazed at how dry the soil was when we dug our holes, so it’s a sign that we need to give all our young trees lots of water before winter sets in.
Thanks to Ida for hosting a wonderful fall fundraiser and feeding us with her amazing pizzas. We had to limit attendance because of COVID restrictions, but the event helped build up the balance in our bank account to pay gardening costs next year.
