Rotary Club of West Covina Tree Planting Project 2018
The Tree Planting Committee (Phyllis McDonald, Ken Lund and Dennis Evans) looked into finding a “partner” that would work with our club to meet Ian H.S. Riseley’s challenge to plant a tree for each Rotarian (https://www.rotary.org/en/riseley-says-trees-show-commitment) by the end of June 2018.
The winner is…West Covina Unified School District. According to David Larkin, Director III-Facilities & Capital Projects they will install (25) 24 inch box trees at Monte Vista Elementary School (see attached). The District will pay the additional cost needed above the $50.00 per tree proposed by the Rotary Club for the project. As you can tell there are very few trees there now (and the few remaining trees are expected to die). Our trees will be a big help!
