Memorial Tree Planting and Reception

When: Thursday, May 16, 4 - 6 p.m. 
Where: Prairie Oak Lodge at Squaw Creek Park 
             Highways 13 & 100, Marion, Iowa 


Join us to recognize all of the individuals honored or memorialized through a donation to the Trees Forever Foundation, the Granting a Better Tomorrow Endowment Fund and planned gifts. 

Together we will plant a few trees in our memorial grove. We invite friends and family members to write notes to their loved ones and place the notes in the soil before the trees are planted. 

As we think of the future and the new life being planted, we’ll take a moment to reflect and thank those who have created this legacy. Your generosity is a testimony to a brighter, better tomorrow.

Please RSVP below by Monday, May 13.
