By Rosanne Pack Under bright blue skies, city officials were aided by second graders earlier this week as they planted another living symbol of Arbor Day for Rehoboth Beach, a recognized Tree City U.S.A. Mayor Sam Cooper and mem- bers of theCity Parks and Shade Trees Commission were joined by the second graders from Tracy Kelley's math and language arts class at Rehoboth Elementary School in the tree planting cere- mony. Together, they placed a white cherry tree on the school grounds over-looking a tributary of Silver Lake. Before the tree roots were cov- ered by the mayor and the stu- dents, Priscilla Smith, chair of the parks and tree commission gave a brief history of Arbor Day. She reminded those present that Arbor Day was fwst observed 125 years ago when residents of Nebraska set aside a day to recognize the beauty and the necessity of trees. She said those first Arbor Day enthusiasts wanted everyone to realize Jhe role trees play in the balance of nature. "In proclaiming the first Arbor Day, they pointed out that the environmental benefits of healthy trees include their importance in conserving soil and water and the air filtering effect they provide. They are a renewable resource and they beautify our land," Smith said. Cooper proclaimed April 29 as Arbor Day in Rehoboth Beach, and he asked all citizens to join him in planting trees and support- ing urban forestry programs. Those who planted trees in Rehoboth in the memory of loved ones were recognized for planting more than 20 trees last year in the on-going memorial program. "The planting and upkeep of more than 200 trees in our memor- ial program has helped Rehoboth Beach earn the Tree City U.S.A. designation for the eighth year in a row," Smith said. The ceremony included Kel- ley's second graders performing a dramatic reading of a poem about a child's love of the adventures of tree climbing. Students in Kelley's class are Ronald Blizzard, Troy Cannatelli, Chelsea Charles, Ashley Gibbs, Daevon Harmon, Brielle Hay- ward, Bryan Hickman, Jonathan Kersey, Ashley Kraus, Samantha Lee, Andrew Logan, Sadye MacGuire, Steve Martinez, Zachary Mayfield, Tom McMa- hon, Brittany Shevock, Donald Swans, Shannon Sweeney, Jessica Tabron and Rudy Woodworth.
