Boy Scouts Help Historical Society Mulch Trees

Feel free to share this post...

If you’ve noticed the newly-planted trees along Old Mission Peninsula roads, you can thank the Old Mission Peninsula Historical Society for that. For many years, the group has been making sure we have trees that provide lovely shade along our roads.

They will also plant a memorial tree in honor of a loved one. Click here for more info on that, along with a form you may fill out and mail in.

Jim Hall, who co-chairs the Tree Committee with Cal Jamieson, said they’ve recently planted 50 trees on the Old Mission Peninsula, and they were grateful to have the help of Boy Scout Troop 34 help with the mulching.

Troop 34, based at the First Congregational Church on Center Road, does a lot of projects for the Old Mission Peninsula, including our parks and trail systems.

Pictured above is the Troop helping to mulch newly-planted trees at the corner of Center Road and Gray Road. Jim said they did a great job.

Well done, All!

A NOTE FROM JANE: I started Old Mission Gazette in 2015 because I felt a calling to provide the Old Mission Peninsula community with local news. After decades of writing for newspapers and magazines like the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Family Circle and Ladies' Home Journal, I really just wanted to write about my own community where I grew up on a cherry farm and raised my own family. So I started my own newspaper.

Because Old Mission Gazette is a "Reader Supported Newspaper" -- meaning it exists because of your financial support -- I hope you'll consider tossing a few bucks our way if I mention your event, your business, your organization or your news item, or if you simply love reading about what's happening on the OMP. In a time when local news is becoming a thing of the past, supporting an independent community newspaper is more important now than ever.
