ALBION – A crew cut down a cluster of pine trees by the tennis courts this week at Albion Central School. The trees were shedding needles and dropping debris on the tennis courts.

The trees were planted about 30 years ago as a memorial to John Moyer, who died in a car accident on Ridge Road on April 6, 1985. Bruce Wright, one of Moyer’s friends, helped plant the trees and was upset to see them cut down.

The school district is exploring options for “a suitable replacement landscape,” said Margy Brown, president of the Board of Education.

Wright said he would like to see a memorial continue for Moyer on school grounds.
