Trees from MCI

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS BRIEF - Staff Austin

Wa­sit the weather, the soil is still soaked from the rainy spring, but the usual line-ups at the open­ing of the Mem­phrem­a­gog Con­ser­va­tion Inc. an­nual tree giv­ing event were not there, much to the dis­may of Gisèle Lacasse Benoît, the or­ga­ni­za­tion’s pres­i­dent. Half an hour later, things were get­ting back to nor­mal at the Austin dis­tri­bu­tion point and she was once again ex­plain­ing what species goes best here or there. Other posts were also giv­ing 3000 trees away at the same time in Fitch Bay and Ma­gog, The trees come from the Que­bec gov­ern­ment farms and are pro­vided by l’As­so­ci­a­tion for- es­tière de l’Estrie.

As is usual, Mrs. Lacasse Benoit wants to re­mind all of the free ser­vices of­fered by MCI, most of them ex­plained at mem­phrem­a­ where you can also reg­is­ter as a mem­ber.
