Tree Planting: A Celebration of the Spring
In Spring 2014 we branched-out, and put down roots in our community: collaborating with the bloomin’-wonderful Friends of Trees to research and plant special trees on our sidewalk strips. It was as exciting as a shaking green leaf during a mighty wind.
Patrons & friends stopped-by in March for an Open House, as we dedicated the 8 trees to 8 of the key benefactors of our first years: Merilee Bales, Janice Callahan Martin, Megan Cole, Amy Resnick & Lynn Webb, Ronni Lacroute, Deb France, Dr. Andrew Noble & Dr. Tomm Pickles, and the Neighbors of Concordia.
“Tree Planting” was an original theatrical and ceremonial presentation, a poetic offering featuring the harbingers of Spring, as embodied by 9 local actors: Megan Cole, Gretchen Rumbaugh, Duffy Bishop, Damaris Webb, Elizabeth Huffman, Ithica Tell, Diane Kondrat, Dre Slaman & Cecily Overman.
