On January 21, 2001 Arbor Day wascelebrated in Thibodaux at Peltier Park.  TheThibodaux Beautification Coalition planted 24 trees in memory of or in honor of friends,relatives and loved ones.  A brief ceremonywas held at Peltier Park commemorating those who had donated monies for the 2ndAnnual Tree Legacy Program.  As part of theceremony, Rev. Wilmer Todd, pastor of St. Genevieve Catholic Church, gave a blessing ofthe trees.  Over 30 community residents whoattended the ceremony heard many delightful stories about special memories that trees giveus during our lives from Jeannie Thalheim, President of Thibodaux BeautificationCoalition. 

 This year, Recreation DirectorRalph Landry dedicated the area close to the tennis courts in Peltier Park for theplanting of a Crepe Myrtle Grove and three Elms that will provide shade for parents andfamilies who watch baseball games in the hot summer months.  Also in attendance was Mayor Charles Caillouet who stated that he hopes thatthe children will watch the trees mature with warm memories of this day and he encouragedthe children and the public to continue the tree legacy throughout their lives. 

 The next Tree Legacy event willtake place in Martin Luther King Park, said Mayor Caillouet.   The Tree Legacy Program is another way forthe city to work with the community to embrace and maintain the beauty and attractivenessof the city, while remembering and honoring special friends and loved ones.
