Memorial Trees

by Steve Saddlemire, Co-Chair, Grounds Committee

The Grounds Committee has had a long planned project to identify and label the memorial trees located on the church property. Utilizing the historical perspective of Bernie Ruekgauer, we found the trees for Donald Kahn, Art Shafer, Catherine Hager, Chris Lahoda, Ruth Anne Rosenberg, Jack Sharp, Rudy Turner, Barbara Livingstone, Robert Wheeler, William Kuestner, Charles Nugent and Philo Elmer. Unfortunately, several memorial trees had succumbed to disease and were no longer available for a plaque.

Please take a moment to wander around the grounds and find someone you remember and smile knowing they have been memorialized for all to see.
