Newtown holds a wonderful Arbor Day celebration every year at Brain S. Gregg Memorial Park at 130 N. Chancellor St..  Arbor Day is today – April 25th. The fun begins at 10 a.m. and all are welcome!  Please come join us, munch on an apple, sing some recycling songs and HUG A TREE, and come visit me over in the Chalk Drawing RAIN FOREST!

In honor of Arbor Day we had Story Time all about TREES this week. In our Opening Song, we said hi to the librarian, the books, our library friends and the TREES!
