A simple way to give back to nature and the community

It was a rainy day in Eagle, Idaho, but that did not prevent Mayor Jim Reynolds from proclaiming the City of Eagle a Tree City for the 19th consecutive year. The City used the opportunity to highlight a tree donated by the Eagle Optimist Club.


The Eagle Optimist Club chose to donate a tree in honor of their first successful Christmas Tree fundraiser. According to Ben Gard, Vice President and Project Chairman, it was a good way to give back to nature and the community. "We plan to do this every year," he said.

Does your Optimist Club give back in such a simple way? Sometimes it is the small projects that make the most impact. That Chanticleer Pear Tree, chosen by and planted by the City, will last for many generations to come.
