Smith v. Mount Holyoke Friends of Trees Volunteer Event!

November 15, 2011 § Leave a comment


The Mount Holyoke Alumnae Club of Portland will be joining the Smith College Club of Oregon and the wonderful local non-profit Friends of Trees in a good natured MHC vs. Smith tree plant off.  This event is being organized with the help of Elizabeth Elbel, a 2005 alum and Neighborhood Trees Specialist with Friends of Trees and her Smithie Friends of Trees colleagues.
This event is open to alumni, partners, family, children and friends.  Please feel free to sport some blue and white or other MHC garb to show some school pride (however be sure to dress for December weather in Portland)!  Everyone is welcome, no experience needed, and Friends of Trees works with all types of people so if someone has a disability or an injury we can still find a role for them on our planting crews.
We will be sending out an Evite invitation in the near future so we can get an accurate count of people who are planning to come.

When:  Sat, December 10, 8:30 AM – 1 PM

Description:  Join Friends of Trees in planting trees as a volunteer!
