[ARCHIVED] City of New Rochelle Celebrates Arbor Day


The City of New Rochelle in conjunction with the New Rochelle Public Library celebrated Arbor Day with a tree planting in Ruby Dee Park at Library Green on Friday, April 29. Deputy Mayor Jared Rice- Councilmember for District 3, Parks & Recreation Commissioner Bill Zimmermann, Public Works Commissioner Alex Tergis, Deputy Public Works Commissioner Scott Pickup, Planning & Sustainability Director Nina Arron and Arborist Paul Rebholz were joined at the ceremony by children enjoying the Library’s vacation week programming which included crafts and sapling-planting.
