All base personnel are invited to attend the tree planting and help celebrate the event alongside local youth from Hanscom Middle School and the 66th Air Base Group Commander Col. Lester A. Weilacher.
Arbor Day originated in Nebraska in 1872. The holiday quickly spread and is now celebrated in all 50 states and around the globe. Hanscom's contribution this year will be to plant trees at Memorial Park. The additional trees will provide shade, color and other environmental benefits.
