A Liberty Elm Tree on the green then and now
It has been 9 years since it was planted and dedicated
Good Afternoon Norwich and Upper Valley readers,
This is a short story about a Liberty Elm tree that was planted on September 11, 2014 to honor all Veterans, US Military, and First Responders. There were lots of dedicated volunteers and team effort that assisted in this project and the mission was a success.
Today, however the tree stands tall in a silent tribute to all those who have sacrificed and to those who continue to serve their country.
Today it stands tall and still looks great
As with all the trees on the green it has been labeled
This Liberty Elm was propagated on 2010 in Keene, NH
