The Bethalto Arboretum is celebrating its 50th anniversary this fall, and the village is planning a work day to spruce up the grounds.  Much like your garden, the Arboretum needs weeded and manicures, so a work day has been planned for next Saturday, August 13th.

Community volunteer Jane Ahasay tells The Big Z you are welcome to volunteer at any time throughout the day between 8am and 5pm.

She says there will soon be an arboretum Facebook page with updates on work days and events.  For more information on the work day, call 377-8051, x 4.
