The TREES Inc. annual meeting was held at the "Red Barn at Sycamore Farm" on September 3, 2015. A social gathering began at 6 p.m. followed by a buffet style dinner at 7pm. The meal was prepared by chef Kris Kraut of the Butler's Pantry Food Co. 61 people attended the meeting.
The business of the evening commenced with the approval of the August board meeting minutes. This was followed by the treasurer's report and the president's review of the year. Next was the nominating report and election of new members, returning members renewing memberships, and officers.
State champion big tree certificates were awarded for 14 Indiana State Champion Big Trees.
In closing, the annual "Green and Growing" and "Mighty Oak" awards were presented to Andrew Southard and Jane Santucci.
TREES Inc. has closed the book on its first quarter of a century of service as a non-profit environmental volunteer group serving Terre Haute and Vigo County. The classic 101 Trees on the Indiana Veterans Memorial Mile were weeded, mulched and pruned. Trees were planted at the Paul Dresser home in Fairbanks Park, two "Keep Terre Haute Beautiful" liter cleanups were conducted, and invasive species eradication events were held. New trees were planted along S. Fruitridge Ave. at Deming Park, Earth Day educational activities were presented, and a special presentation to OLLI at Westminster Village was conducted. A TREES photo contest was held and Dogwood Point in Deming Park was rededicated. TREES Inc. is thrilled to have shared this special time with our many friends throughout this great community.
