Story and photos by Monty Siekerman
Members of the Ada Tree Commission, with the help of eight Sigma Phi Epsilon members, trimmed trees in town on last Saturday afternoon.

Trees in the Industrial Park, Depot Park, and the right-of-way of streets were made safer, healthier, and more beautiful due to the efforts of the volunteers.
