A big crowd of preschoolers older students and adults were on hand Friday, April 28th at Warren ABC Preschool to celebrate Arbor Day 2017.  Arbor day is the result of efforts by J. Stanley Morton, begun in 1872 when school children planted over 1000 trees.  In 1970 President Nixon proclaimed the last Friday in April as National Arbor Day.  It is celebrated in all 50 states and around the world.

Wonderful special music was provided by the ABC Preschool kids.  Warren Mayor Byran Martin then introduced guest and issued a proclamation designating April 28th as Arbor Day in Warren.
