Joyce Kilmer said it best, I think that I shall never see a poem as lovely as a tree. Since 1872, Americans have observed Arbor Day not only to celebrate our lovely trees but also to plant and nurture them.  This Saturday, everyone is invited to an Arbor Day celebration at Heritage Park downtown where there'll be live music, tons of children's activities, a snake humorist show and so much more.
