The City of Greers Ferry will plant a tree in remembrance of World War I Veterans, Wednesday November 29, 2017, at 10:00 a.m. in the City Park off of O’Brien Dr.  
The WWI Memorial Tree (a two year old Willow Oak) has been made available through a partnership of the Arkansas World War I Centennial Commemoration Committee and the Arkansas Forestry Commission.
Communities in Arkansas have been urged to plant trees in 2017 and 2018 to remember the 71,862 Arkansans who served during the Great War, including the 2,183 who died while in service.  The goal is to have a memorial tree in each of Arkansas’ 75 counties by the time the commemoration concludes at the end of 2018.
The Arkansas WWI Centennial Commemoration Committee has provided a small batch of soil from the Meuse-Argonne National Cemetery in France to be added when the tree is planted.  Everyone is welcome.
