Every year volunteers speak to each third grade classroom to help celebrate Arbor day! This year is
our 28th Arbor Day Anniversary at the Village Elementary School. Not only do the students thoroughly
enjoy our presentations, many prior volunteers expressed how enjoyable their experience was.
The Montgomery Shade Tree Committee would be so appreciative if you would celebrate Arbor Day
with the 3rd graders by agreeing to be a Speaker on Friday, April 4th from 9:40 to 11:00 am.
Please let me know if you are available on that date and would like to participate this year. It is an
open discussion you have with the children about the basics of trees. A very easy discussion since
they are so thrilled to have a visitor and are eager to learn! You will be explaining about the species
of tree selected for this year and review planting instructions. Feel free to bring in props found in your
own yard. A branch with thorns, an acorn, or seed pod works wonderfully! This program has been so
well received for two decades because of wonderful volunteers like yourself and the personal creative
spin each of you put on your talk.
We are also in need of "Tree Wrappers" to help us prepare the trees to give the student the afternoon
before. If you can't sign up to be a speaker can you please help us Thursday April 3rd from
4:00pm-5:30pm in the VES Lobby?
*Please RSVP to *Michelle Blane* email@example.com no later than Friday March 21, 2014.
Please also forward this message to anyone else you think may be interested in participating!
Anyone who volunteers gets a free tree!
