Making the Earth a Healthier Place

Fourth grade students at Wading River School attended a special assembly program where they learned all about the importance of trees and the background of Arbor Day. They were visited by members of the Rocky Point Lions Club, Brookhaven Town Supervisor Edward Romaine and councilwoman Jane Bonner.

Each student was presented with a Norway Spruce sapling to plant at home and Principal Lou Parrinello was presented with a certificate of appreciation, which honored the students for joining others across the country as part of the Fourth Grade Forester Program in helping to revitalize the observance of Arbor Day and making the earth a healthier place.

Timothy Nigrel, a student in Alison Quenzer’s class, was especially happy to welcome one of the Lions Club members: his grandmother Anita Nigrel, who serves as president of the organization.
