This morning, a group of Cody Rotarians braved the elements (i.e. the wind) to turn a heaping pile of discarded Christmas trees into mulch. Organized by Barry Reiswig and powered by donuts, Rotarians came away tired and smelling much like a car air freshener. Among the hundreds of trees handled was one Christmas sagebrush. No Rotarians were harmed, however one mouse was saved from the mulching machine, as was one artificial tree.
