Letter to the editor:
On behalf of the Mineola Civic Center staff and board of directors, I want to express sincere gratitude to all the people who came over Saturday to observe Mineola’s first Arbor Day, to plant trees and do a great deal of clean-up at the civic center grounds. Mayor Kevin White issued a proclamation and Daniel Duncum of the Texas Forest Service was at hand to help plant dogwood trees and talk about stewardship to and benefits of healthy forestry . Thank you all for a most pleasant time and very meaningful work day.
George Assaf, Board President
