A Capital Tree

Earlier this month members of Friendship Force helped me dedicate a sugar maple in the capital of Canada. The tree is in Sherry Lane Park close by the home of my hostess. We couldn’t exactly tell which of the young trees planted in the area was the one the Parks Dept had designated, so we chose the one we liked best and it was decked out with tree-grams. Norm McLeod, a retired teacher, found a “mafia” of young girls at the playground and gave them the task of watching out for the tree. We told them about Susie and bribed them with tree-kibbles and bookmarks. This Susie tree has guardians. With the trees in Washington, and now Ottawa, the Susie Forest has to find a way to plant a tree in Mexico City.
