ARBOR month is a cheerful time celebrated throughout the world during spring where individuals are encouraged to plant a tree and take an active role in making the environment a better place.

To start the month off, the Rotaract Club of Verulam took to Dianthus Primary recently, to plant a tree which they believe will one day provide shade and beauty for the future generations of Verulam.

The club said in a statement: “It is said that he who plants a tree plants hope and The Rotaract Club of Verulam are dedicated to creating a better future for their community.”

In upholding their drive to making their community a better place, the Rotaract Club of Verulam teamed up with the Verulam Environmental Organisation for a beach clean-up at Umdloti Beach on September 16.

“Not only did we fill approximately 12 bin bags of trash that had been laying around on the beach, but wisdom and motivation had been passed onto our club through our interaction with the Verulam Environmental Organisation.

“We would like to thank the Verulam Environmental Organisation for extending the invitation to us in aiding them on this project and we kindly urge the community to continue keeping Verulam clean, safe and beautiful.”
