 WHEREAS, in 1872, J. Sterling Morton proposed to the Nebraska Board
of Agriculture that a special day be set aside for the planting of
trees; and

 WHEREAS, this holiday, called Arbor Day was first observed with the
planting of more than a million trees in Nebraska; and

 WHEREAS, Arbor Day is now observed throughout the nation and the
world; and

 WHEREAS, trees can reduce the erosion of our precious topsoil by wind
and water, cut heating and cooking costs, moderate the temperature,
clean the air, produce oxygen and provide habitat for wildlife; and

 WHERAS, trees are a renewable resource giving us paper, wood for our
homes, fuel for our fires and countless other wood products; and

 WHEREAS, trees are a source of joy and spiritual renewal; and

 WHEREAS, Price City has been recognized as a Tree City USA by The
National Arbor Day Foundation and desires to continue its
tree-planting ways.

 NOW, THEREFORE, I, Joe L. Piccolo, Mayor of the City of Price, do
hereby proclaim April 29, 2011 as


 in the City of Price, and I urge all citizens to support efforts to
care for our trees and woodlands and to support our City's community
forestry program, and 

 FURTHER, I urge all citizens to plant trees to gladden the hearts and
promote the well-being of present and future generations.

 DATED this 15th day of April, 2011

Joe L. Piccolo, Mayor
