Our Arbor Day Celebration and Tree planting took place at Richmond Park on Thursday, April 25th. The Prophetstown Elementary School 3rd graders, 2 teachers, the principal, 2 Representatives from ComEd (whom donated the trees and bushes for planting), Mayor Doug Dunlap, Superintendent of Public Works John Wright and his crew, Chief Mike Fisk, Deputy Clerk Alicia Wetzell, and Arlyn Madsen (who guided the children in the planting and explained a lot about planting trees).
