Rosanne Pack photo Milton Library branches out for Earth Day In the midst of the 125th anniversary celebration of Milton Public Library, staff and mem- bers of the Friends of the Milton Library observe Earth Day 2000 by planting a dawn red. wood. Even though the April 22 weather was not bright and hospitable, the rain made for easy planting of the tree that was purchased with Friends of the Library funds. DeViibiss Landscaping planted the tree and the plague marker was created by Quillen Signs.

In observance of Arbor Day, Walker also announced the school had benefited this year from a Sci- ence, Math and Technology (SMT) Alliance mini grant of $1,500 to create an interpretive trail and tree identification proj- ect. The grant was sought by and awarded to teacher Mary Matthes' class. Rehoboth Elementary School was one of eight schools receiving the SMT grants this year. As developed by Matthes, the grant will be used to label at least 30 varieties of trees on school grounds which would be part of an interpretive trail used as an outdoor classroom. Arbor Day - founded in 1872 and established as April 28 in Delaware by a 1961 proclamation from Gov. Elbert N. Carvel - was also observed with a Poetree Tree activity during which students wrote poetry and hung their po- ems on a cardboard tree in the school. Delaware Department of Agri- culture tree specialist Brian Hall attended the event in observance of Arbor Day and donated a small American Holly, the state tree, to be planted by students on school grounds. Smokey Bear posters promoting tree protection were al- so donated by the department. Hall also read a proclamation from Gov. Tom Carper calling for Rehoboth Elementary School to "be our guardians" of:trees in ob- servance of Arbor Day. The proclamation was given to Matthes for her class activities. Inclement weather delayed stu- dents from planting the state-do- nated holly tree until Thursday, April 20, but Tuesday's combined Earth Day and Arbor Day pro- grams filled the school with youthful energy and hope for the future. Songs, poetry readings, class recitals and play perform- ances- all geared to the environ- ment - carried the message that good stewardship can make a big difference. Fair Skies April 20 took students outside to plant the holly and learn more about tree identification.
