Arbor Day Tree Fair

Thursday, April 18
12:15 am

Arbor Day Echo Tree Fair is planned for Thursday, April 18 starting at 12:15 pm. The celebration will start in the park with an award ceremony. The city will receive 30-year awards from State Forester Katie Lompa and Diane Berry will receive an Oregon Community Tree President’s award.

Clement Tree
The city will also recognize Douglas Clement by naming the large pine tree in the corner of the George Park for him. This is the only original tree remaining in the park. Originally the park was full of Black Locust Trees. The pine tree is estimated to be about 60 years old.

Following the award presentation students will rotate between Tree Fair stations to create posters, write a letter to future students, do bark rubbings, have a 'Tree' Storytime in the library, and enjoy refreshments at Fort Henrietta Park.

The poster contest is open to the public as well as students. The theme is Echo Trees Now and in Another 30. The winning poster will be used to illustrate the Clement Tree sign. Prizes will be awarded to the winners selected later that afternoon by the council. To enter, the poster must be turned in to City Hall by April 18 at 3:45 pm and must have the entrants age, name, class or address on the back. Prizes will be awarded in amounts of $30, $20 and $15.

We will be making up a small time capsule and will put posters and other items commemorating the celebration inside. The time capsule will be placed in the Echo Museum. Hopefully Echo will still be a Tree City for its 50th anniversary and it can be opened then. At the letter writing station, children will write letters or a story addressed to future Echo students about Echo trees and what they mean to our community. These letters will go into the time capsule. At the poster station, Diane Berry will share Tree Trivia.

Poem-Essay
The city is also asking for entries in a poetry-essay contest. A $30 prize will be awarded to the best entry and these will also be placed in the time capsule.

Free Drawings
The city will be drawing names for a tree and various other prizes. You can fill out a ticket at City Hall from April 15-18 or at the tree fair refreshment table at Fort Henrietta Park.

OCT Grant
Oregon Community Trees (OCT) has awarded the city a $500 grant to help with the Tree Fair fdArbor Day Celebration. OCT’s Mission is “to promote healthy urban and community forests through leadership, education, awareness and advocacy.” The grant will be used for prizes, helpers vests and refreshments. As well as snacks at the tree fair.

The city is sponsoring a cake for Echo School students. Tara Longhorn, Echo School Cook, is baking and decorating this cake, and a smaller one for the City Council meeting at 4:00 pm. A short reception with refreshments will be held at beginning of the council meeting.

YouTube
A representative of the state forestry department will be making a video on Echo’s Tree Program that will be available on YouTube. If you are interested in talking about Echo and its trees for the video, let us know at City Hall.
