SCOTCH PLAINS — The students, faculty, and staff of Union Catholic High School celebrated their commitment to the environment with a special Arbor Day service on Friday, April 15, hosted by the Union Catholic Environmental Club.
The Arbor Day Tree Planting service included remarks from Principal Sister Percylee Hart as well as the presentation of the proclamation from Scotch Plains Mayor Nancy Malool designating April 15 as Arbor Day in Scotch Plains. A flowering tree was planted during the ceremony in commemoration and remembrance of the upcoming 10-year anniversary of 9/11 and those who lost their lives on that tragic day.
