Editor: Thank you one and all. Two thousand Redbud trees were given away at our booth at the Leesburg Flower and Garden Festival this year, courtesy of the Leesburg Tree Commission.
The popular booth was staffed by youth volunteers from Heritage High school, the Kincaid Forest HOA, Loudoun County Tree Stewards, Mayor Dave Butler and his son, and the Tree Commissioners. The winning smiles and helping hands of all volunteers working alongside the commissioners, made the event a huge success.
A free raffle was also held to give away 10 7-foot-tall Redbud trees to an excited crowd. Our community is better off for having more trees.
Thank you Leesburg residents for making our town a Tree City USA award winner once again.
Patricia Hatfield, Chairwoman
