Van Far Elementary School received a Tulip Poplar, known as a “Liberty Tree,” and planted it last week. The tree was planted by the Brice Happy Hustlers 4-H Club. The first Liberty Tree was identified by the Sons of Liberty during the protest against the Stamp Act in Boston in 1765. A Certificate of Authenticity was provided.
