Foley’s Revitalization and Beautification Advisory Board invites the community to the city’s 40th Annual Celebration of Arbor Day. The event will be held at the Coastal Alabama Farmers and Fishermens Market, located at 20733 Miflin Road, at 1:00 P.M. on Saturday, Feb. 27.
Foley, recognized for 40 years as a Tree City, proudly promotes the planting of trees. Trees reduce erosion, cut heating and cooling costs, produce oxygen, provide habitat for wildlife and add beauty to our environment. Representatives from the Alabama Forestry Commission, Baldwin County Master Gardeners and Certified Arborists will be on hand to answer any questions about trees.
Boy Scout Troop 77 will assist in the distribution of trees. An assortment of trees in one and three gallon containers will be given away, one tree per family please. The Foley High School Air Force Junior ROTC will present the Colors for the occasion. The winning posters from the Arbor Day Poster Contest will be on display.
Live Oak Trees will be dedicated and planted in memory of three special people who loved Foley and made our city a better place because of the time they spent here. Dedications will be made in memory of Mrs. Bebe Foster, Dr. Marvin “Buddy” Taylor and Mr. Terry Underwood.
