Chatham-Kent Kiwanis Donate 7 Red Maples to St. Angela Merici Catholic School

The Kiwanis Club of Chatham-Kent has donated seven red maple trees to St. Angela Merici Catholic School. 

“On behalf of our entire school community, I want to thank the Kiwanis of Chatham-Kent for the donation of these beautiful trees, which will be enjoyed by the school community for many years to come,” says Juli Faubert, Principal of St. Angela Merici Catholic School.  “We acknowledge the good work of the Kiwanis in Chatham-Kent, and thank them for their support of youth and literacy initiatives.”

This spring, the Kiwanis Club of Chatham-Kent began an effort to plant Carolinian trees at elementary schools and other locations across the Municipality.

Over the past two weeks, 30 trees have been planted at five schools and at the Kiwanis Stadium.  The club also planted 100 seedlings at Camp Cataraqui on the shores of Lake Erie.

“This initiative is part of our club’s active interest in environmentalism,” says Chuck Scott, President of the Kiwanis Club of Chatham-Kent.  “We hope to make these tree plantings an annual event.”
