The annual Arbor Day celebration hosted by the Elk Grove Park District is scheduled for 10 a.m. Friday.
A new tree is planted every Arbor Day, and this year organizers are planning to plant a Quaking Aspen Tree. The ceremony also will feature the reading of an Arbor Day proclamation, a story about the importance of trees, and children singing about planting a tree, officials said.
The ceremony will be held at the Al Hattendorf Center, 225 E. Elk Grove Blvd. For more information, contact (847) 437-9494.
