WESTON -- The Weston-McEwen Lions Club has teamed up with students in town to encourage local residents to plant trees as part of a global initiative.
Community residents are invited to join in planting 50 Ponderosa pine trees April 3 at 9 a.m. along Banister Road and Washington Street.
The tree-planting event coincides with Oregon's Arbor Day observation April 2-6, and is part of the Lions Clubs International Million Tree Planting Campaign.
The global campaign launched July 2011 and ends in June. It focuses on caring for the environment and our communities through tree planting.
