The Village of Niles would like to invite all residents to attend this year’s Arbor Day Ceremony on Friday, April 24 at 1:40 p.m. at Emerson Middle School (District 64), located at 8101 N Cumberland Ave. in Niles. The ceremony has become an annual Village tradition to celebrate the longest living organisms on earth, the trees.
The celebration of Arbor Day presents an opportunity to exemplify the importance of learning about trees and the natural world. It is important to teach children that planting trees is an act of kindness and optimism and a priceless gift for future generations.
The ceremony will begin with a tree dedication given by Mayor Andrew Przybylo. Following the dedication will be a reception with refreshments. The Village would like to thank St. Aubin Nursery for donating this year’s tree.
