Members dedicate tree

Members of the Emmaus Garden Club marked Arbor Day by planting a “Rising Sun” redbud tree at Faith Presbyterian Church in Emmaus and dedicating the tree in memory of their longtime member Dorothy Nicholas.

The ceremony was held at fellowship hall at the church recently with approximately 40 people, including garden club and church members, in attendance to share in the celebration and tell of the many accomplishments Dorothy Nicholas achieved during her lifetime.

The tree was planted earlier that week and the ceremony was held indoors.
