Last year, together we planted 455 trees in honor of Rotary’s birthday that morning in one hour and twenty minutes with the help of 255 volunteers!

 

Our volunteers ranged in age from 6-84. Rotarians, family members, neighbors, all joined hands to celebrate and come together for a wonderful morning of new beginnings and lasting impact.

 

We need your help again on Sunday, March 15, 2015, from 1 pm to 4 pm at J.W. Grier Elementary (a CMS school), located at 8330 Grier Road, Charlotte, NC 28215. We will again make a strong positive impact in our community, and as Rotarians, along with family and friends, we will strive to plant 500-600 trees at this wonderful elementary school.
