Arbor Day

Volunteers gave away 750 trees Friday morning in Old Town in celebration of Arbor Day. This was the eighth year for the "Care-A-Ton" tree give away. Staff at Associated Integrated Marketing helped put on the event, the company's vice president Shawn Steward says this was their most successful year yet.

"People were lined up starting at five this morning, it's just been crazy," Steward said.

This year's event was so successful volunteers ran out of trees just after 7:00 a.m.
