Tree planting November 20th.

Hello Tree Fans,

As we told you in our last email, Wrigley is Going Green has been awarded a grant from the Neighborhood Partners Program to plant 60 trees on the streets around the Wrigley Garden on Henderson Avenue.

The event will begin at 9 a.m. on November 20 at the Wrigley Garden which is located at 1950 Henderson Avenue.

All of our volunteers will be entered into a raffle to win 4 turkey dinners provided by the Wrigley Albertsons on Willow Street.

Students who volunteer can receive credit for community service hours.

In addition to planting trees, we will be unveiling the Wrigley Garden mural created by our very own local artist Lisa Wibroe. This was also a part of our grant from the Neighborhood Partners Program.

Many local businesses are supporting this event: Albertsons, El Paisano Market, Northgate Supermarket, Shortnin Bread, Starbucks, and Walgreens. More will be joining soon!

We look forward to seeing all of you on November 20 to continue to help this neighborhood blossom.

Mauna Eichner, and Lee Fukui
