Quinsigamond Community College
Saturday, October 23rd at Qunsigamond Community College from 8:30-12 we planted 65 trees with the help from the boy scouts and girl scouts. Congressman McGovern, Lt. Gov. Murray, Senator Chandler, Rep O'Day, Mayor O'Brien, City Manager O'Brien and representatives from QCC and the Scotties/ReLeaf project and American Forest were on hand. The event was sponsor by Scotties/RELeaf.
We were able to plant 65 trees in 7 different locations around the QCC campus. Spruce, Dawn Red Woods, Red Oaks, Serviceberries are just some of the species we planted. We added to the 100 trees that we previously planted with the help of CSX last spring. The weather was beautiful and everyone worked hard to learn how to properly plant a tree and then planted the trees. Everyone recieved goody bags from QCC and t-shirts/bags from Scotties REleaf. It was a great effort of the community coming together to help plant trees in one of the hardest hit areas.
