The Chinese Club of San Marino held its annual tree planting event in Lacy Park earlier this month to encourage the public to protect the environment and to commemorate revered Chinese leader Sun Yat-Sen.
Wen Shang Chu, director general of the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in Los Angeles, and many San Marino officials attended and supported the event.
Club President Tony Chou explained that the group has planted a tree on Chinese Arbor Day for more than two decades.
A Chinese pistachio was planted about 200 feet west of the playground.
“We sincerely hope that when this plant blooms in the future, everyone can enjoy it at Lacy Park,” said Chou. “Just like a Chinese saying, ‘One generation plants the trees in whose shade another generation rests.’”
