Mayor celebrates Arbor Day on May 4

Lakewood Mayor plants trees with 3rd graders in honor of Arbor Day and Tree City USA designation


Belmar Elementary School third grade classes will join Mayor Adam Paul, Lakewood’s members of City Council and the City’s forestry staff in planting eight trees at Addenbrooke Park in celebration of Arbor Day and the City’s designation as Tree City USA at 9:15 a.m. on Thursday, May 4, 600 S. Kipling Parkway. The activities, proclamation reading and planting will take place on the east side of the park near the elementary school.


The mayor will speak to approximately 50 students about the vital role trees play for a community and will read the Arbor Day proclamation. Keith Wood of the State Forest Service will talk about the Tree City USA award and present it to the mayor. The students, after planting trees adjacent to their school in Addenbrooke Park, will leave with tree seedlings to plant at home.


Members of the media are welcome to attend. Please meet the students, mayor and staff on the east side of the park, close to the elementary school. Parking is available on the east side of the park from South Garrison Street.
