(L-r) Clearwater and District Chamber of Commerce president Jon Kreke, acting mayor Barry Banford, town councillor Ken Kjenstad, and National Forest Week organizing committee member Sandy MacKenzie plant a tree in Weyerhaeuser Park near the splashpark on Sept. 21, National Tree Day.

The chamber donated the tree, which came from Rooted by the River. For more about National Forest Week events in Clearwater, see page A3 inside as well as next week’s issue of the Times.
