Northampton County Youth Group Tree Planting

The Town of Cheriton would like to express their upmost appreciation to the Northampton Youth Group that helped to beautify our Town Park. We received a call from Dessie White their Youth Group Leader asking if we would mind if they came one afternoon to plant trees and gave us a list of trees that we could choose from. The group of approximately 18 youth and parents met at the park this past Thursday evening along with Cheriton United Methodist Pastor, Virginia Greer and Eastern Shore Soil and Water Conservation District Education Director, Julie Head. The group divided into five groups and planted two Pin Oaks, two Dogwood trees and a Persimmon. Our Town is so blessed to have this group come forward to help us. Thank you again for your hard work and thoughtfulness.

Mayor, Town of Cheriton
