Tree Planting 2020

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.


This weekend, Sonja Lundstrom organized  snowman building on Sunday afternoon, creating a little group of figures to great people entering the park at the Harvard and Ruskin corner.


Tuesday morning there was a little girl, about 3 years old,  going from one snowman to the other, gently hugging each one.
