"Cowardice asks the question...is it safe? Expediency asks the question...is it politic? Vanity asks the question...is it popular? But conscience asks the question...is it right? And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular but one must take it because it is right." ~Dr. Martin Luther King

Tree Planting For Free

Last week-end 214 high school  students committed to spend three hours  on  Easter  Saturday morning planting 1,475 trees in Aurora.

200  were planted in East Gwillimbury.

950 were planted  in Newmarket.

Lake Simcoe Conservation authority provided the trees and shrubs,

Neighborhood Network provided the volunteers.

Aurora parks provided the locations.

Mayor Dawe provided pizza and a good time was had by all.

Quite the contrast to a year ago when the project was not permitted in Aurora.
