As an activity to engage kids and their families during this quarantined time and as a revival of a 4th grade, school district tradition that his own children participated in, a Whitewater party is offering a white spruce seedling to any interested child/family. While it was hoped that this offer could have coincided with Arbor Day today, prevailing social conditions will postpone distribution of the trees until sometime in the next two weeks. The date and safe pickup location will announced soon in another Banner notice. For now, happy Arbor Day and remember this. The best time to plant a tree is 10 years ago. The second best time to plant a tree is today.
