Rotarians join in cemetery tree campaign
Several Grantsburg Rotarians helped organize a drive to plant 15 new maples trees in the Riverside Cemetery in Grantsburg. Storms in the past few years have caused the loss of many old trees. Donors came up with funds to help replace many and this group of Rotarians helped spearhead the project. Show are (l-r) Dave Huff, Roger Inouye, Peter Johnson, Stan Peer, and Gordy Lewis. The trees were planted on May 22.
