Local Modern Woodmen of America members gave a lasting gift to the community on October 13, 2015. Members of the Charleston Modern Woodmen 15337, Girl Scout Troop 1835, and Friends of Spring Hill Cemetery, gathered at Spring Hill Cemetery Park to plant 2 trees.
The project was part of the Plant A Tree Program, a nationwide program introduced by Modern Woodmen for its members in 2004. Through the program and the help of its members, Modern Woodmen has planted thousands of trees across the United States.
“This project allows local Modern Woodmen members to give a gift to the community,” says Daniel Blevins, local Modern Woodmen contact. “Planting trees is an important way to create a secure future for families, communities and the environment.”
Coordinated by local Modern Woodmen members, chapters provide opportunities to take part in social activities and community service projects to meet local needs. Youth service clubs provide young Modern Woodmen members with opportunities to volunteer, be patriotic, learn new skills, make friends and have fun. A special thank you to John Archer and Chris Feltner at Spring Hill Cemetery Park.
