The Friends of the Port St. Lucie Botanical Gardens will celebrate Florida Arbor Day at 11a.m. on Friday, January 19, 2018.
Arbor Day in the United States holds a long tradition and place in the hearts of many citizens, remembering the Arbor Day celebrations of their youth and school years. Because of its subtropical growing climate, Florida celebrates a different Arbor Day date than that of the majority of northern states; the third Friday of each January is officially Florida Arbor Day.
The ceremony will begin with a prayer, followed by greetings, a recitation of our Arbor Day poem, and the reading of names in memory of loved ones. A tree will then be planted in The Gardens identified with a plaque commemorating its year of planting. Memorials will be listed in the Book of Remembrance displayed in The Gardens’ Pavilion. A minimum donation of $25.00 is requested for each memorial inscription and recognition.
To make a donation send a check to the Friends of the Port St. Lucie Botanical Gardens, 2410 SE Westmoreland Blvd, Port St, Lucie, FL 34952. Please be specific as to your desired memorial for inclusion in the Book of Remembrance.
