MEDINA – The public is invited to visit Gwinn Street Park on Friday to help the Medina Tree Board and Village of Medina celebrate Arbor Day by planting trees.

Kathy Blackburn, chairwoman of the Tree Board, has arranged for the third grade at Oak Orchard School to participate. They will lead off the morning’s activities with the Pledge of Allegiance at 10 a.m.

Medina expects to plant 20 trees in the village in the next few weeks, said Mayor Mike Sidari. The village has also received about $4,500 in donations from the community for a “Releaf Medina” effort to plant more trees in the future, he said.
