Mayor Dowhan Donates $3,000 Towards Tree Planting Initiatives in 2021

Not only is today Earth Day, but it is also Mayor Dowhan’s birthday! We would like to express our gratitude to him for another personal financial contribution as he continues to invest in our green future by adding to the number of trees in our community.

This year, Mayor Dowhan has donated $3,000 towards tree planting initiatives and wishes for his donation to be put towards the purchase and planting of the trees identified in the proposed landscape plan for the grounds of City Hall at 100 Main Street South. In the next few weeks, Dauphin Recreation Services will plant 20 trees of 3 different varieties along the north side of City Hall including:

  • Delta Hackberry (Celtis occidentalis)
  • Trembling Aspen (Populus tremuloides)
  • Starlite Flowering Crabapple (Malus baccata ‘Jeflite’)

Again, thank-you Mayor Dowhan for your generous donation! We wish him a very happy birthday!
