Maurer is a huge supporter of Western New York and has shared his expertise and experience as a professional in marketing with numerous business and not-for-profit organizations.
The mission of Re-Tree WNY is exactly what the name says. The goal is to replace the approximately 30,000 trees in Western New York that were damaged or destroyed by the freak October 2006 snowstorm. Re-Tree WNY was established on November 3, 2006 by a group of about 40 Western New York residents who saw first-hand the devastation done to the beautiful Western New York living resource — trees — and decided to take action to re-forest every public area that was destroyed.
The project had a five-year plan with the first planting done on Arbor Day, April 27, 2007. 2,000 trees were planted to get the project a strong jump-start.
Help is needed: Volunteers to maintain & plant trees, work on fundraisers; offer recommendations; report where the needs are greatest; and SPREAD the WORD about Re-Tree WNY’s mission and urgent need of help to accomplish their goal.
Come to have breakfast with the Rotary Club of West Seneca and hear Paul’s message about the efforts, needs and success of Re-Tree WNY.
