Everlasting Memories on Arbor Day

Japanese zelkova

Arbor Day will have special meaning on the Franke Tobey Jones campus!  Eight Memorial Trees with tribute plaques have been purchased by residents and will be planted across from the Care Center on the large grass area.

Zelkova Serrata trees have been considered a symbol of protection for villages since ancient times, and the number eight signifies balance and love for humanity.

These eight trees will serve as a living tribute that not only celebrates loved ones, but also benefits our FTJ “village” by enhancing the landscaping and beauty of the campus for present and future generations of FTJ Residents, Families, and Staff.

The Memorial Tree Planting Ceremony will be held on Arbor Day, Friday, April 28th, 2023, at 11:00 a.m. and anyone who would like to attend is invited!
