Mount Prospect Historical Society Gardeners Celebrate Arbor Day 2010

McKay Nursery Company’s “Color It Green” Tree Donation Beautifies Museum Campus

As part of the restoration of the Museum Campus grounds, the Mount Prospect Historical Society was proud and happy to receive a donation of a Donald Wyman Crabapple tree from McKay Nursery.  This donation is due to McKay’s “Color It Green” initiative, and was facilitated by their local representative Kathy Uszler, who owns a local landscape design firm known as the Plant Manager.

“We are so pleased that our program can assist in restoring the historic grounds of the historical society’s museum campus.  Crabapples were specified in the original landscape design a number of years ago, and we hope the Donald Wyman Crab we provided will grow and bloom for many years,” said Uszler.  According to Greg Peerbolte, executive director of the Historical Society, several memorial benches were funded as part of the Central School capital fund and it is hoped this new tree will provide shade to one or two of them as it matures.

Assisting with the planting were Kathy Uszler, Greg Peerbolte, and members of the Garden Club committee, including Mary Soyka, Rita Waters, Judy Schliessmann, Mary Lange and Village Trustee Arlene Juracek, also a member of the Historical Society Board.
