This was done to observe Arbor Day. The Lions Club’s Mission of community service, good citizenship, and promoting the welfare of the Pioneer and Montpelier communities is a very noble one. This project helps students learn that they can make a difference in their communities and have a direct impact on their environment. Now in the era of global warming and air pollution, tree planting is even more important than ever. Trees take carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere and help clean the air we breathe. Planting trees is a simple, inexpensive, and easy way to address this problem.
