On Saturday, May 25th, we held our second Tree for Me event at Colonel Samuel Smith Park.
In 2018, we gave residents approximately 300 trees. This year, we increased that to 446 trees.
Despite heavy rain during the early hours of the event, we had residents lining up to pick up their free trees, and walking away with big smiles on their faces. For the LBNA Volunteers, it was very rewarding to see those smiles.
Our MP, James Maloney, even took time out from his busy schedule to attend and to see the Bird Festival that was also underway at the Park.
On behalf of the LBNA Board, we’d like to thank both the residents and the volunteers who came out for the event and we expect next year’s Tree for Me event to be even more successful.
