Arbor Day Celebration

Arbor DayHave you hugged a tree lately?  Join the Village in celebrating the environment and all things trees with the Godfrey Parks and Recreation Department at Glazebrook Park!  The day kicks off at 8 am with a youth fishing derby and continues from 9 am - 1 pm with face painting, environmental crafts, youth games and more!  Free redbud tree seedlings will be given away to the first 300 visitors. The Memorial Tree Dedication Ceremony will take place at 12:00 pm to recognize the individuals for whom the last year’s dedication trees were planted. 

Mayor McCormick will be competing in the AmeriCorps friendly food drive in competition with Alton's Mayor Brant Walker. Please help support Mayor McCormick and the community by bringing a non-perishable food item (or two!) to the Arbor Day celebration.
