Mayor Morris and Councilmember Marquez Plant trees in San Bernardino
(SAN BERNARDINO, Calif.) As part of the Bicentennial Celebration Mayor Patrick Morris, Councilmembers Virginia Marquez, Bicentennial Chairperson Rabbi Hillel Cohn and volunteers including San Bernardino Visitors and Convention Executive Director Wayne Austin planted 200 trees in the City of San Bernardino, each representing a year of San Bernardino’s existence.
“The 200 hundred trees were planted as a lasting tribute to San Bernardino’s Bicentennial and its residents’ philanthropic spirit.” said Nick Calero, chair of the Bicentennial Celebration’s Tree Planting Committee.
“When we first began formulating plans for the celebration of our Bicentennial we knew that we wanted to leave a legacy to the future generations. Trees will not only beautify our city now, but they will continue to provide beauty for generations to come. Just as we enjoy the trees that our forbearers planted, so we have plant trees for those who come after us,” said Rabbi Hillel Cohn, Bicentennial Committee Chairperson.
