Forrest center students put in ‘sweat equity’
The Rotary Club of Lexington Park appreciates the June 13 article in The Enterprise concerning the local implementation of the Rotary International Tree Project.
We would like to give additional credit to a very important group of young people. The planting of the cherry trees at Lexington Manor was indeed assisted by military personnel under Mr. Kyle Rambo, conservation director for Naval Air Station Patuxent River, but the “sweat equity” portion of the project was accomplished by students from the Natural Resources Program at the Dr. James A. Forrest Career and Technology Center, under the direction of their teacher, Mr. John Spinicchia.
We would like to publicly acknowledge and thank those students for taking on this task to help make Lexington Manor and Lexington Park a better place to live, work and play.
