The skies dried up enough on April 29, 2017, for 50 volunteers – some of whom were supporters of the Ursuline Sisters of Mount Saint Joseph – to plant 400 trees in Horse Creek Park in Owensboro, Ky.
The trees were provided to the city of Owensboro by the Ursuline Sisters. During the “Sowing Seeds of Faith” appeal in the fall of 2016, supporters of the Ursuline Sisters were promised that anyone who donated at least $100 would have a tree planted in their honor during the April 29 Arbor Day event. The donor names were listed on a banner that was on display at the event.
Here are some pictures from the tree planting.
