In the Community,

After raising more than $2700 to support replanting of trees in Park Ridge, our store is following up as sponsor for this fun contest encouraging local kids to wax poetic about trees. Students at all District 64 and private elementary schools in Park Ridge are invited to submit their original poems on the subject of trees for Park Ridge Friends of the Parks’ first PoeTree contest. The contest is being held as part of the 100 Trees for 100 Years campaign to replace trees lost to disease in Park Ridge Park District parks. We’ll be providing cool prizes like a pizza party for the winner’s whole classroom and more! Learn more at PoeTree Contest.
