The Annual Arbor Day event, Spring Festival (Easter Egg Hunt) and Lakeland Clean-up Day emphasized the importance of volunteers and contributions by Lakeland organizations and businesses.
The Lakeland Lions Club and Trustmark Bank of Lakeland helped an estimated 130 children (and parents and other family members) enjoy the annual Spring Festival/Easter Egg Hunt and enjoy activities such as face painting, games and the actual Easter Egg Hunt. The Lakeland Lions Club contributed both funds and approximately 15! volunteers to the event and really helped make the event a success!
Members of the Lakeland Natural Resources volunteered in making the Arbor Day event a success, highlighted by the annual planting of a tree and especially by the tree climbers who amazed the crowd with their tree climbing skills as they pruned "dead wood" from a tree overhanging the playground equipment in City Hall Park. They also emphasized the role of safety in working with trees.
The Annual Lakeland Clean-up day was a success and assisted by All Star Waste Services and City personnel, including volunteer work City Engineer Philip Stuckert and his wife, Joyce.
Thanks to all of the volunteers and especially to the Lakeland Lions Club and Lakeland Trustmark Bank!
The next Lakeland event is the Annual Fishing Rodeo. Due to other events and a dramatic increase in the price of fish, we are especially in need of volunteers and funds this year to make this annual event a continued success! Theresa Meyer (867-2717 or TMeyer@lakelandtn.org) has information on volunteering or funding needs.
