In partnership with the Springfield-Washington County Chamber of Commerce, New Pioneers sponsored an Arbor Day tree giveaway April 30 at 1 p.m. in front of the Lincoln Legacy Museum in downtown Springfield.
The giveaway took place in conjunction with a tree planting ceremony, hosted by the chamber, to honor the essential workers who have tirelessly served our community throughout the pandemic.
New Pioneers staff provided information about the trees, including directions for planting and caring for the saplings.
