Arbor Day Recognized With a Special Tree Planting with Arlington Kiwanis

Arlington Kiwanis members will plant a flowering pink snowbell tree on Saturday, March 30th in memory of George Boulton.  They are honoring George for his lifetime service in the Arlington Kiwanis Club.  A tree memorial creates a lasting tribute and benefits the community. 

Kiwanis selected the ‘Marley’s’ Pink Japanese Snowbell because of its spring color corresponding to George’s May birthday and because the tree is unique with its pink blossoms and “cotton candy” fragrance.  “We think George would have loved the floral qualities of this tree.” The tree will be planted on Saturday March 30th in the flower garden at the City Hall plaza.

March is a perfect time to plant trees; therefore, the City is declaring March 30th Arbor Day in Arlington.  Trees are a source of joy and increase the livability of our city. We urge all citizens to celebrate Arbor Day.
