The Rotary Club of Cavite Centro (RCCC) undertook a tree-planting project last June 15, 2019, at 8:00 in the morning in Dasmarinas, Cavite. The activity was not only aimed to strengthen the ties of Rotary Members and their families within the Club but also, to inculcate in the children’s minds the value of trees, as being essential to both human and animal lives. The site was two-hectare farmland owned by a fellow member of Cavite Centro. Seedlings were bought by the RCCC club members in Tagaytay. With the participation of the member’s grandchildren (under the supervision of the Rotarians), who were tasked to plant at least twenty seedlings each. Each tree planted bore a name tag as represented by each of the twenty grandchildren of RCCC members, which reads: “One day someone will be sitting under the shade and pick up the fruits…because someone planted a tree today and that is you – Name of Grandkid”. From then on, this will be our continuing program as we will be monitoring its development, especially during summer.
