The Kansas City Athenaeum is 120 years old in 2014!

April 4, 2014 is Arbor Day in Missouri. To celebrate, the Philanthropy Committee will participate in the 4th Grade Foresters Project at Academie Lafayette.

There are 106 students, so we thought it would be fitting to buy 120 trees in honor of our 120 years. The extra trees will be planted at the Athenaeum.

Each tree seedling is $1.79. Please consider making a donation to this project. $5 almost buys 3 trees! Contributions can be made at the February 12th meeting, or by mail to the Athenaeum.

Questions? Call Jenks at 816-835-5643 or email Philanthrophy. The Philanthropy Committee is looking forward to delivering the trees to the children.

Thank you from Jenks Wallace, Kathryn Worley, Dianne Capps and Jim Lilienthal.

A Remarkable Idea, Arbor Day at School. In the beginning . . . In 1885 the National Education Association called for observation of Arbor Day in all of the nation's schools on the official Arbor Day of their own State. It was a resounding endorsement of J. Sterling Morton's founding of Arbor Day. When the Nebraskan was later asked about the holiday he remarked, "All other holidays repose upon the past, while Arbor Day proposes for the future." School observations grew by leaps and bounds. Over the years, millions of children received and planted millions of seedlings . . . millions of seedlings that grew into millions of mature trees. Together, those trees make up a unique forest. A forest planted by generations of America's children.
