“Georgina Island was selected as a planting site under TD Bank’s annual Tree Days program. The program provides bank employees the opportunity to volunteer in the communities where they live and work, as well as demonstrate a commitment to forest stewardship.”
“Community members, as well as staff and students of the Wabgon Gamig school joined TD employees, their families and friends to create, not only a memorial space, but also an area dedicated to preserving greenspace. They planted trees, shrubs and a centerpiece red maple memorial tree, spread mulch and topsoil and held a tobacco offering in the new parkette across from the Island’s Communtiy Center.” By Heidi Riedner YRMG
On July 2nd, 2014 we held the Grand Opening for our new Memorial Tree Park. We had a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony and Plaque Unveiling followed by a BBQ courtesy of the Georgina Island Police Department. Pictures and videos will be updated soon.
