Carla Goody and Sarah Swyck of Monterey Care Center help plant trees at Windsor Park as part of the Lions International Tree Million Tree Planting Campaign.
The city of Grove City has partner with the Grove City Noon and Evening Lions clubs and Monterey Care Center to plant trees in Windsor Park as part of the Lions Club International Million Tree Planting Campaign.
The International Lions President Wing-Kun Tam challenged members around the world to plant one million trees to demonstrate the strength of the lions global network from July 2011 to June 2012.
Grove City Noon and Grove City Evening Lions clubs were awarded grants from the 13F District Ohio Lions. Their contributions and grants, combined with a donation from Monterey Care Center, totaled $1,150 toward planting 13 trees in Windsor Park (eight evergreens and five Sweet Bay Magnolias).
“We are pleased that we can contribute to this worthy project right here in our hometown, said Grove City Noon Lions Club president Jerry Hunt.
Grove City has also been named a TreeCity USA by the Arbor Day Foundation for nearly 20 years.
“The Grove City Lions Clubs have been a great community partner for more than 60 years, making this a particularly special event, said Grove City Mayor RichardIke Stage.Windsor Park continues to benefit from the Grove City Lions Club generosity, with their donation of the large shelter house and playground equipment for the visually impaired.
All 13 trees were planted on June 9 by Lions Club and Monterey Care Center volunteers.
“We are delighted to be a partner in this important effort for Windsor Park, said Monterey Care Center coordinator Sandra Swyck.
