Trees planted in honor of sixth graders

| April 27, 2018

COSHOCTON – A tree was planted on Arbor Day, April 27, at Coshocton Elementary School in honor of the sixth grade class. The American Linden tree was donated by the city’s tree commission, which prepared a spot outside the school to plant the tree and planted it with the help of students. This is the fourth time the tree commission has done this in honor of the graduating sixth graders. “This is a prime location for your tree,” said Tom Heading, who chairs the tree commission. “Everyone coming in and out of the school for all sorts of events will see it. When you graduate (from high school) it will be a good size tree too. It will be big enough for you to stand under the shade on graduation day.” In addition to Heading, the tree commission includes Steve Fox, Connie Miller, Jim Marcentile and Tom Kistler. Deb Bigelow from the Coshocton Soil and Water Conservation District office also attended the tree planting and had seedlings for the students to take home and plant.
