Cameron University celebrated Earth Day earlier today with a tree planting made possible by the Lawton Northeast On-Line Branch Lions Club, a branch of the Lawton Northeast Lions Club. This marks the seventh consecutive year the group has donated a tree to the university. Allen Granger, president of the Lawton Northeast On-Line Branch Lions Club, and members of the club were on hand to celebrate the planting of an Eastern Redbud on the south side of Cameron’s Aggie Gym.
“Cameron University is deeply appreciative of the support of our campus beautification efforts by the Lawton Northeast On-Line Branch Lions Club,” says Albert Johnson, Jr., Vice President for University Advancement. “The dedicated group of community-minded individuals is passionate in the support of Cameron.”
“The redbud trees around Aggie Gym have been beautiful this year,” says Granger. “Each year, our Lions Club looks forward to celebrating Earth Day with Cameron University. Many of our club members have ties to Cameron, including Joe Wotring, a former member of the Department of Military Science. He takes great pride in selecting our trees each year.”
The Lawton Northeast On-Line Branch Lions Club established their tradition of giving trees to Cameron in 2009 with two Red Oaks. Beginning in 2010, they have contributed Eastern Redbuds, which bring brilliant color to the Cameron campus each spring.
