The Mattapoisett Tree Committee and Tree Warden Roland Cote are pleased to announce the tenth year of Tree City USA participation by the Town of Mattapoisett. Each year, an application is submitted by the Tree Committee to become a Tree City USA community. One of the requirements is the community must have an Arbor Day celebration and ceremony. To help celebrate this year, the 5th grade class from Old Hammondtown School, under the direction of the Art Teacher, participated in the Mattapoisett Arbor Day Poster Contest sponsored by the Tree Committee. Artwork from the contest will be on display at the library throughout the month of April.
At its next meeting, the Selectmen will present Tree Committee Chairperson Sandra Hering with a proclamation officially recognizing Friday, April 27as Arbor Day in the Town of Mattapoisett. A Town Arbor Day ceremony will take place on April 27 at 10:00 am with the raising of the Tree City USA/Arbor Day flag at Town Hall.
