On behalf of the Oregon Trail Junior Golf Program we would like to give special thanks to Jan Burklund & John Wruble with Janscape Nursery for the beautiful Cottonwood Trees, landscaping equipment & labor along with John Grafford for his trailer, equipment & manpower to make this project a success and get 26 6-ft. trees planted on Arbor Day.
This was a huge undertaking and would not have been possible without their services. The following people were a tremendous help in planting trees, gave generous donations, helped to develop and/or to build the gazebo and range site for our local high school golf teams and youth.
We are forever grateful for your support for this community-wide effort.
