We're Planting 100 Trees by April 24th

From Sis. Ruby Frazier, MI Conference 1st Vice President:

Welcome to an exciting opportunity to contribute to God’s earth providing a life giving force for ourselves and future generations to come. We ask each Area to commit to planting as many trees as you desire. Our Conference goal is 100 trees collectively on or before Arbor Day 2009. We ask that one tree per area be dedicated to the memory of Sister Mary Hatter who worked tirelessly in the Michigan Conference. Many of us have lost loved ones or a special member of our society over the year. You may choose to remember them by planting a tree in their memory also.

To help you with this goal here are a few tips to get you started:
1. On-line visit You will find a wealth of suggestions and ideas about planting trees. One that may be fruitful for you would have your society join the Arbor Day Foundation. Membership is $10 and here is what you receive with this membership:

a. 10 Free Trees. The Foundation will send you trees to plant
wherever you choose.

b. You will receive 2 Give A Tree Cards and for every card you send
the foundation will plant a tree in one of our Nation’s forest that
has been devastated by fire, disease, or insects. The trees can be
planted in honor of your recipient.

c. The Foundation will plant 10 trees in your honor, or the honor of your recipient in a National Forest.

To read the entire letter and fil out a tree planting report form, contact your local society president who received the information by e-mail. The letter and form are also available on the Michigan Conference CD distributed February 28, 2009 and available by mail for $15. Get the order form here.
