Rotary Club gifts 200 seedlings to students

The Liberty Rotary Club celebrated Arbor Day by giving away more than 200 seedlings to every fifth-grade, ESL, ABLE and self-contained special education student in the Liberty Middle School. In addition to the seedling, each student also received an Arbor Day pencil, sticker, flower pot and pamphlet with directions on how to plant their tree. An Arbor Day poster was also for each classroom. Special thanks to Jeff Hall, whose ESL students packaged the seedlings for their fellow students.
