Students Sponsor Annual Tree Hug-a-thon, Dedication
TREE DEDICATION — Alma College's Dennis Skriba, assistant director of administrative systems, and Fran Groves, performing arts office associate, gathered Wednesday, Oct. 31, with members of Students United for Nature (SUN) for tree dedications honoring Groves' mother and Skriba. Chestnut trees were planted in memory of Grieta Elenbaas, Groves' mother, in front of the Remick Heritage Center for the Performing Arts. A Cardinal Flowering Crab tree will be planted to recognize Skriba's extraordinary support for the student environmental organization. SUN was conducting its annual Tree Hug-a-thon to raise money for the Roeper Tree Fund that purchases trees to plant on campus in the organization's bid to maintain Alma College's claim to be the most arboreal diversified campus in the United States.
