Tree planted at library

The Fleur-de-Lis Garden Club gathered at the Cameron City Library to plant a live oak tree for Arbor Day on March 10. Mayor Connie Anderle signed an Arbor Day Proclamation in honor of the occasion. Arbor Day began in Nebraska in 1872 with an initial planting of more than one million trees. The Texas Legislature passed it into law in 1889.  Arbor Day continues to be observed around the world in recognition of the benefits of trees to the environment, economy, and general well-being of those who benefit from their presence.
