In spite of the advance weather predictions, Saturday April 16, our planting day, was a beautiful, but chilly, sunny day. Donors and donor families indicated they planned to spend a good portion of the day, following their planting, enjoying the park. With the help of Don, Mike, Colin and Bjorn, donors planted 18 trees, in the island where the park and residential roads separate.
Many were planted in memory of or to honour family members. One couple donated a tree to honour their two friends, who were married in Presqu'ile in 2021 and both couples took part in the planting. Another donor planted a tree just because she loved planting trees. For anyone wishing to donate to the Friends Memorial Tree Planting program, the next scheduled planting will be on Saturday October 15, 2022. You can use the Donate button on our website.
