I wish to thank the Humboldt park Watch for their program on Tree Day, Wednesday, October 9, 2013 at Humboldt Park. We had many volunteers who helped introduce first graders to Humboldt Park and its contents. I would like to thank John Sternkopf and Frank Mulvey for taking the children on a tour of the park showing them the various trees and the park area nearby. Many other volunteers worked on the inside to help the children draw leaves and to make buttons (Myron & Linda Thomsen lead this effort). I am not naming all of the volunteers, but you know who you are. Thank you everyone for your help on Tree Day. Milwaukee County had several trees planted on this day. A Very special thanks to Cliff Hale. This is one of the events sponsored and produced by the Humboldt Park Watch and its friends and volunteers. This is a once a year event. A special thank you goes to all who helped with this event.
