Arbor Day celebration returns to Red Bay

Arbor Day is always a fan-favorite in Red Bay, and this year is sure to be no different, as Red Bay will host its annual Arbor Day celebration at Red Bay City Hall March 15 at 2 p.m.

Every year the City of Red Bay plants a tree in honor or in memory of someone for the Arbor Day celebration. This year a tree will be planted in memory of Barbara Weatherford Cashion.

“She was such an outstanding lady and a wonderful teacher for so many years,” said Red Bay city clerk Linda Holcomb.

Holcomb said every year the Red Bay Garden Club decides who the planting of the tree will be honoring, but there is always a tree planted each year because it is a requirement to be a part of Tree City USA, a program recognizing cities for their excellence in urban forestry management.

The ceremony will take place at City Hall before the tree is moved to its permanent home. This year the tree will be planted in front of Red Bay High School.

The Arbor Day celebration is expected to draw about 200 in attendance. There will be refreshments available at the celebration, and several speakers will present on the importance of Arbor Day. There will also be family members to speak about the celebration honoring Weatherford Cashion.

“My favorite part is honoring the person who is chosen for the year,” Holcomb said.

Holcomb said is expecting this year to be one of the biggest celebrations yet.
