First- and third-graders at St. John Neumann Regional Academy’s elementary campus got an Arbor Day visit from a Penn College horticulture instructor on Friday, along with a take-home project to nurture. Carl J. Bower Jr. (who also provided the photos) gave a presentation on the importance of trees and handed out Norway spruce seedlings to pupils and their teachers. The seedlings came from the tree farm of Justin Shelinski, laboratory assistant for horticulture in the School of Transportation & Natural Resources Technologies, who donated them for the observance.
