CUYAHOGA FALLS — Cuyahoga Falls Director of Public Service Eric Czetli has announced the city is planning an Arbor Day Program April 25 at 4 p.m. at the Cuyahoga Falls Library, 2015 Third St.

The public is invited.

Each year, the city plants a tree to recognize an element of Cuyahoga Falls that has made a significant impact on the community. This year, the life of Valerie Moirano, a longtime employee of the Cuyahoga Falls Library, will be honored and remembered with the planting of a Japanese stewartia tree.

Along with the program, the city selects one local school to participate in an Arbor Day Bookmark Contest. The third-grade classes at Richardson Elementary School have been chosen this year with the theme of “Trees: Real Live Superheroes” as the city recognizes the importance of trees in the community and the ways they help people and the environment.

The bookmarks are judged by the Tree Board members awarding a grand-prize winner and four honorable mention winners. The winners are given prizes, which will be handed out at the ceremony.

For more information on program, call the Office of the Service Director at 330-971-8240.
