The Washington Tree Committee has given a special thanks to the Washington County Fair Association. Dave Greiner has been on the tree committee for 15 years, and he says the association has spent years planting trees at the fairgrounds, which was a joint effort of the tree committee and the fair board.
The Fair Board President Jerome Vittetoe reports more than 70 trees were planted last summer. And 60 were planted over the previous two years. Despite drought conditions, none of those trees have been lost.
