Lakeside Survivor Tree
On April 26, a seedling from the Oklahoma City Survivor Tree was planted in Lakeside on the hill overlooking The Memorial Garden at Chautauqua Park. This small American Elm is intended to be a reminder to all of the faith, hope and strength of survivors who have lost loved ones. 

The story behind this seedling starts in 2015 when I represented Lakeside at the Tree City USA Award Ceremony held at the Toledo Zoo.
