The Lindenwold Lions Club has taken to heart International President Tam’s goal of having every Lions Club world wide  “Plant a Tree.” In this case, they will be planting more that 150 trees by “proxy”. TheLions are sponsoring a special  program for 4th or 5th grade students by which the students will hear a presentation by Roni Olizi, Chairperson of the New Jersey Shade Tree Commission, about the importance of trees in our lives. Each student will recieve a seedling to take home and plant along with directions for its care. To date, the 5th grade students at Oaklyn School, 4th grade students at Lindenwold #5 School and the LEO Club at Yellen School are partnering with the Lindenwold Lions to plant the seedlings.
