Fourth grade students in Mrs. Schroeder's class at St. Peter and Paul celebrated Arbor Day Friday by planting a tree in front of the school. Ottawa May Dean Meyer and members of the Ottawa Tree Commission were on hand to help the students celebrate Arbor.
Mayor Meyer read a proclamation, approved by village council last Monday, before he and the students shoveled scoops of dirt around the base of the tree to finish the planting.
After planting a tree at SPPS, the Ottawa officials went to Ottawa Public and planted a tree there in honor of Arbor Day.
