Boy Scouts Help Historical Society Mulch Trees


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!
