Premier Wade MacLaughlin to Plant an Oak Tree

Friends of the Farm Invitation
It is a tradition that each Premier of Prince Edward Island plant a tree on the grounds of the Experimental Farm in the Premier’s Grove. The Friends of the Farm Board have secured the tree and completed  arrangements to have our Premier add to the grove.
Premier Wade MacLaughlin will plant an oak tree on Thursday, September 15 at 1 pm.
Everyone, Friends members and the public, is invited to attend the brief ceremony and visit of the premier to the Experimental Farm.
The Grove is located behind Ravenwood in a north west direction.
We look forward to this special occasion.
