Centerville 'Tree-dom' Run to be held April 28 | Community Spirit
A call to all tree lovers...The city parks lost 42 trees in the windstorm on December 1, 2011. In an effort to replace some of the trees, the Centerville City Youth Council will be sponsoring a 5K run on April 28, 2012 at 8:00 a.m. Please bring your friends and family and join us in our quest to raise $1,000 which will replace 10 trees in our parks this spring.
You can register at City Hall anytime Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. until April 27. This race is for young and old, so bring the whole family. Starting line will be on 100 East Street behind City Hall and will follow the same course as the 4th of July Freedom Run. Cost is $5. For more information, please contact Lisa Summers at (801) 295-3477.
As a kick-off to the "Tree-dom Run", the Youth Council will celebrate Arbor Day with Mayor Russell on Friday, April 27 at 3:00 p.m. in Founders Park. Arbor Day is a nationally celebrated observance that encourages tree planting and care.
Planting a tree helps create a healthy and beautiful landscape for us and future generations. City officials are hoping Centerville residents will follow the city's lead by replacing many of the trees lost in the December 1 windstorm.
