Who loves live music, fun activities, and is in need of a free tree?  The 17th Annual Arbor Day Celebration is Friday, April 26th and everyone is invited!

Watching my kids grown up the last few years, one of their favorite memories is when they came home with a tree.  They took so much care in this little tree, found the perfect spot to plant it, made sure it had enough water, and they have watched their little tree grow bigger and bigger each year.

Everyone is invited for this fun day!  The free trees can be found this Friday, April 26th, from 11 am until 1 pm at Three Links - Silver Lake Park at 840 7th Street NE in Rochester.  If there is severe weather, don't worry, the event will still go on at the Rochester Community and Technical College's Field House.
