Palos Park Celebrates its
22nd consecutive Arbor Day
Sunday April 27th 2014

The Village of Palos Park in collaboration with the Palos Park Garden Guild and Palos Park Tree Body hosted the annual Arbor Day Celebration on Sunday April 27th at the Kaptur Administration Center. The presentation started off with the “Presentation of Colors’ by Boy Scout Pack 3699. Brownie Troop 60349 gave a presentation on 14 different species of tree native to Palos Park.

After the presentation the winners of “Who Are Our Trees in Palos Park” poster contestant winners were announced and the winners were on hand to receive a certificate and $25.00 prize. Special thanks to all the children that submitted posters. The winners were as follows:
 

First Place

Annie McHugh Age 5
Claudia Budzak Age 7
Nicole Budzak Age 9
Gobija Mazunaite Age 11

After the presentation ended over 300 Swamp White Oak, Gingko, and Bald Cypress seedlings were passed out to all who attended the event. Thanks to all who helped organize and attend this annual special event. We all look forward to seeing everyone at next year’s Arbor Day Celebration Event.
