Spring is Really Coming The Community's tree committee "Hill- top Tree Huggers" will be continuing the inventory of trees in our fair city as soon as the leaves emerge. It is also a good plant- ing time for anyone interested in helping to beautify the city. We encourage anyone interested to stop by City Hall and pickup a Tree Request form and a list of the property owner responsibilities, including a list of the types not available for planting. Any trees planted on the boulevards must comply with the city ordinance regarding visibility at intersections for oncoming traf- fic. You are also asked to mark with a stake the location of your planting and center the planting equally between the street and edge of the sidewalk. You request will be checked for planting space size and loca- tion; taking into account the size and space between surrounding trees before the plant- ing is done. Don't forget "Julie". Members Of the "Hilltop Tree Huggers" will be glad to assist in anyway we can with planting and staking, if need be, so your tree planting effort will have the best results. We also wish to remind you, the city will reimburse up to $50, with a paid receipt, for each tree planted on public property.

Thanks for Your Support I want to thank all of my family and . friends for supporting me during my trip on ," the Honor Flight to Washington, DC. All " aspects of the trip were very well planned, except we did have snow. We saw the Viet Nam Wall, the Korean and WWlI Memo- rials. Later we visited the Air and Space > Museum. During our trip to Arlington Na- tional Cemetery, we observed the chang- ing of the Guards. On the flight home, t all veterans experienced mail call. Your ., letters and cards were wonderful. I espe- cially want to thank the third grade class at Mt. Pulaski Grade School for the cards and letters. Their artwork was great! I want to sincerely thank my son, Jeffery for sharing the trip withme and being my guardian. When we arrived at the airport, we were welcomed home and thanked for our ser- vice. I encourage all veterans to complete the application and register for the Hon Flight program. Sincerely, Ralph Beccue Mt Pulaski VFW Post 777 Celebrates 45th Year April 27 Mt.
