The Fowler Rotary Tree Project located along State Road 18 E. and South East Street is complete.  The work began on Thursday afternoon, April 19 with the planting of 14 of the 20 trees along St. Road 18.  Then on Friday, April 20, the remaining 6 trees were planted, as well as 20 Arborvitae shrubs planted along S. East Street, between E. Lingle Street and St. Road 18 E.  There were four different varieties of trees planted in the tree section.  The trees have all been staked and mulch placed around the base of the trees.

This Rotary community project is possible, thanks to receiving a District Simplified Grant from Rotary District 6540 in the amount of $1,500.  This Rotary grant was made possible thanks to the generous support of The Rotary Foundation, by Fowler Rotarians.

The committee chair Rotarian Jack Duncan, put in quite a bit of time securing approval for this project with state and local government agencies.  We also need to thank Robbie Lockhart, owner of Branching Out Nursery, located in West Lafayette, on Klondike Road and US 52, for working with us to come up with some of the best trees, for the best price.  We encourage everyone to drive by the area and check out the new additions.
