Buchanan Loves Trees Planting Ceremony on Tuesday, February 14 at Buchanan Elementary School was a wonderful celebration of the planting of 15 trees gifted by the Oklahoma City Community Foundation. The funding was from the Margaret Annis Boys Trust which was established to support and encourage landscaping and beautification projects. Ms. Boys was a long-time educator who spent her final years at Buchanan Elementary School.
The ceremony included Robin Jones, WesTen District; Brian Dougherty, Oklahoma City Community Foundation, principal Trina Resler and several select students who contributed to a memory box that was planted with the “last tree”.
This gift will beautify the campus and the neighborhood and serve as a beautiful memorial to Margaret Annis Boys. Community partners include Musgrave Pennington Neighborhood Association, Portland Avenue Baptist Church, The Windsor District, and Charter Oak Landscape and Tree Farm.
