LEWISBURG— The public is invited to attend a ceremony and walking tour Friday in Union County as part of Arbor Day. The Lewisburg Shade Tree Commission is hosting their annual celebration Friday. It begins at noon at a site where nine new trees have been planted near North Fifth and St. Mary’s Streets in Lewisburg.
The program will include a brief history of Arbor Day and will recognize the borough and Citizen’s Electric for their commitment to the Arbor Day Foundation’s programs. Refreshments will include tree-themed items as well.
This is Lewisburg’s 34th year as a Tree City USA community. Mayor Judy Wagner will read an Arbor Day proclamation that urges citizens to plant trees. Following the ceremony, there will be a walking tour with local tree experts, viewing species of trees that reside in Lewisburg.
