The support of our Endicott Rotary has been a constant over the years, especially this past year. As the school enters its final months, Endicott Rotary once again provided yet another donation that will provide joy for years to come.
Last week, rotary members, along with students, planted new, historic trees at AGM and LWW. The trees are historic because they grew from seedlings from George Washington and Mark Twain trees that were acquired by the American Heritage Trees in Tennessee.
The Mark Twain tree was planted at AGM with student government officers helping. The oak seeds from this tree were taken from a 300-year-old bur oak located at the Mark Twain Cave & Campground in Hannibal, Montana.
The George Washington sycamore tree came from a sycamore in Mt. Vernon, Virginia. Tiger Venture students helped plant it in between the basketball and tennis courts located behind the school.
The students learned about the history of the trees as well as how to plant a sapling. Besides giving a history lesson, Endicott Rotary members showed the meaning of community and collaboration as they continue to support our students and the entire district.
