New ELPT Project ~ Trees for Tomorrow

New ELPT Project ~ Trees for Tomorrow

The East Lyme Public Trust Foundation in co-operation with the East Lyme Parks and Recreation Department is pleased to announce a new project to raise funds for the support of the Niantic Bay Boardwalk and other projects of the Trust. They are offering sponsors a commemorative tree program- TREES FOR TOMORROW- which will make available commemorative trees to be placed in public spaces in East Lyme.

Trees can be donated to commemorate a birth, wedding, graduation, etc. They can also honor a loved one or a special event. This is a chance to use the resonating power of trees to create a lasting, living memorial that will provide scenic beauty and contribute to a healthy ecosystem.

Sponsors may choose to locate a tree at Cini Park, McCook Point Park, Bridebrook Park, The Samuel Smith House, The Smith-Harris House, The East Lyme Library Courtyard, or East Lyme Town Hall. A contribution of $600 for a tree will cover the cost of the tree, planting, an 8”x4” plaque, a base, and a water bag to assist in the stabilization of the tree.

Planting will take place in the spring and fall of 2015. The first phase will offer 25 trees for planting in the various locations chosen by the Tree Warden and the East Lyme Parks and Rec. Department. Since the East Lyme Public Trust Foundation is a non-profit 401c, contributions are tax deductible.

June Hoye is the chairperson for the project in partnership with Dave Putnam, the Director of Parks and Recreation. Her committee includes Carol Marelli and Bill Rinowski-administration, and Pat and Jack Lewis, who will assist in Publicity.

Application forms will be available at: East Lyme Town Hall, East Lyme Parks and Rec., East Lyme Library, and the E.L. Book Barn. They also can be found on the Trust web-site: www.publictrustfoundation.org
