On Sunday 29th April, a large contingent of Werribee Rotarians and family members rolled up to a location in Heaths Road, Werribee with shovels and hammers to plant 750 trees. This was part of Rotary International's challenge to plant 1.2 million trees by Earth Day.

The challenge was for all Rotary clubs around the world to plant one tree for every member. Werribee Rotary decided to do better than that and plant a tree for every year of service of all members in the club. The club has 36 members with a total of 750 years of service. Therefore, the aim was to plant 750 trees and, after much back-breaking work, the goal was achieved in 3 hours. A fantastic team effort by everyone.

Chief organisers Jason Daddy and Kathryn Williams deserve credit for planning such a great day. But every participant should be very proud of their contribution to greening the world.
