The grass is green, and the trees are budding, growing season is near! The Allen County Soil and Water Conservation District is holding its tree sale.
The District and Kiwanas Club of Lima are also working together to distribute four thousand Norway Spruce to every first and third grader in Allen County. Demand for the trees is very strong this year and nearly 70 volunteers and the staff of the Allen Soil and Water District have packaged more than 35 thousand saplings.
The trees are not only a good fund raiser for the district but it's a way to make the community more beautiful. The sale is being held at the Allen County Fair Grounds in the Youth Exhibits Building until 6 PM.
Any remaining trees will be available for sale at the SWCD office at 1601 East Fourth Street in Lima. Or you can call 419-223-0040.
