Arbor Day Celebrations in the Community:

The week around Arbor Day saw many trees being planted around the community:On Monday, May 19th, Mayor Eberhart read an Arbor Day Proclamation from all three local mayors, and praised the efforts of Arbor Day groups and helped to plant a tree with the Friends of Creamer’s Field.On Wednesday, May 21st, the Fairbanks Arbor Committee came to City Hall to plant a spruce tree! Our landscaping has been lopsided since our previous spruce tree died and staff was happy to see this new green life in our lawn. The Arbor Committee is pictured here: Mike Musick, Dr. Karl Monetti, Jim Smith, Naomi O’Neal (with “Pink” the Arbor Dog), and Dick Farris. Naomi grew and donated the spruce we are now sporting in front of our building. Thank you Fairbanks Arbor Committee!
