The Mendenhall Flying Lions recently participated in International President Tam's Plant a Million Trees program by planting six green ash trees at the Juneau Skate Park. Ed Buyarski of Ed's Edible Plants donated the trees and Terry Hinkley of the City and Borough helped locate a site for us to plant the trees.
It was a rainy day.... but coffee and donuts lured seven Lions and two young children out to help plant the trees. We had a good time and good fellowship and all the trees were planted in about an hour's time. This was but a small piece of the 9.7 million trees that have already been planted!
