May 5th Tree Planting for Rotary Members


The two local Rotary clubs of Dundas participated in the May 5th Community tree plant for 2018. Rotary International has set a goal for each Rotary Club to plant a tree matching the number of members in the Club. Rotarian Dr. Kamal Shankardass organized our involvement and sought the funds from the Executive.


Upwards of 20 Rotarians from the Rotary Club of Dundas and the Dundas Valley Sunrise Rotary Club along with other local people interested in volunteering, listened to the organizers of the tree plant as they explained the reason for the look of the surroundings, the number of trees to plant and how to plant them.


Near the corner of York Road and Old Guelph Road, over 2,000 trees of various species hardy to this district, were planted on May 5th. Most trees were surrounded by white plastic protective tubes to discourage critters and wild animals from feeding on the new saplings.


A funny moment caught on camera. I thought this would be a great caption for a photo.

"You want me to plant how many trees today?"
