Thanks to all who supported this great tradition. Alexis Franklin, President of the Friends of McMichael Park, wrote a poem to express her gratitude:


From a Prince to a Panda,
A Paulownia to a Park.
Friends, Spouses and Hero’s
And Volunteers will spark.
Our 18th year, a tree aglow
With Thanks from the Turtle
Your constant beau.
