Messenger photo by Rick Palsgrove
Groveport celebrated Arbor Day on April 27 by dedicating the mural at KidSpace and by planting two Pacific Sunset red maple trees at Groveport Elementary and two Royal Raindrop crabapple trees in Blacklick Park. Pictured here is Mayor Lance Westcamp reading a proclamation recognizing Groveport Elementary art teacher Danae Sperk, her fellow staff members and volunteers, and the third graders at the school for their efforts in creating the nature scene mural that now adorns KidSpace on Wirt Road. The 24×16 foot painted mural also includes 9,760 colorful plastic bottle caps.
Groveport was named a Tree City USA for the 25th straight year in 2018. Pictured here are Groveport Elementary third grade students helping to plant a Pacific Sunset red maple tree on their school grounds.
