Arbor Day in Monticello

The City of Monticello celebrated Arbor Day, Friday, April 24 by planting a tree – actually two trees. Arbor Day was first officially proclaimed in 1874. Now, more than 100 years later, the value of planting trees continues to be recognized. The Monticello High School National Honor Society definitely understands the value of planting trees. Society members Kendyl Boyd, Adam Butler, Heather Holyoak, Catherine Redd, Kara Rogers, Samara Wells, Devin Wright, and Society advisor Kara Boyd dug holes and planted two honeylocust trees at the City Ball field recreation area. Their hard work will be remembered for years to come. In fact, their hard work can be recognized at the trees located near the playground at the recreation area. Courtesy photo
