Salisbury Lions Club adds 2,000 pines to tree planting effort

Lions Club International President Wing-Kun Tam asked Lions worldwide to plant at least 1 million trees to help protect the environment. To date, Lions have planted more than 7 million trees.
The Salisbury Lions Club voted to buy and plant 2,000 trees. The club has two members, Major Queen Williams of Salisbury High School JROTC and Jack Kepley, Scoutmaster emeritus, who asked many of their youth to help plant pine trees on March 10.
Three Forest Service agents also helped ensure that the volunteers knew how to plant the trees and remained with the group throughout.
Cheerwine made sure no one went thirsty.
John Fisher, Kepley, Harry Garwood, Wendy McCullough, Wayne Kennerly, Williams and Jerry Austin from the Lions were involved with the project.
Mark and Angie Cauble of Bringle Ferry Road and Dan Nicholas Park let the group plant trees.
