Residents and team members of Brandywine Living at Wall welcomed local officials for a special Arbor Day Proclamation and tree planting ceremony. The proclamation was part of the Wall Township Environmental Advisory Committee Arbor Day and Earth Day program.
The proclamation that declared April 27 as Arbor Day in Wall Township, was read and presented to Jessica Easton, Brandywine Living Escapades Producer, by Wall Committeeman Tim Farrell. Other officials in attendance included Deputy Mayor George Newberry, Monmouth County Sheriff Shaun Golden, Freeholder Director Tom Arnone, Freeholder Sue Kiley, and Freeholder Nick DiRocco. Additionally, Freeholder Director Tom Arnone read and presented a Monmouth County proclamation to the community.
All Wall Township Committee and Monmouth County Freeholders who attended the special Arbor Day program at Brandywine Living were former mayors.
“When Wilma and Scott of the WTEAC reached out to me to conduct this program at our community, I knew our residents would love it — and they did! Arbor Day programs tend to focus on school students with the senior population forgotten. It was wonderful for our residents to be included,” commented Jessica Easton.
The proclamation ceremony included planting a beautiful weeping cherry blossom tree that was donated by Barlows Garden, informative lectures on Arbor Day and nature, and singing patriotic songs.
Wilma Morrissey, WTEAC Chair said, “It was a wonderful day and an inspiration for our environmental committee to make a presentation to our forgotten seniors who truly enjoyed the event. We thank our Township Committee and Monmouth County officials in joining us to make this day extra special.”
