Cameron University celebrated Earth Day 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 eighth 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 two Eastern Redbuds on the south side of Cameron’s Aggie Gym.
“The Lawton Northeast On-Line Branch Lions Club continues to support Cameron’s campus beautification efforts,” says Albert Johnson, Jr., Vice President for University Advancement. “For years to come, the redbud trees surrounding Aggie Gym will serve as a vivid reminder of these Cameron University supporters.”
"The Lawton Northeast On-Line Lions Club is once again proud to be donating Eastern Redbud trees to Cameron University in honor of Earth Day 2016,” says Granger. “This has been a tradition for our club since its inception in 2009. It is our hope that the trees which surround Aggie Gym serve as a constant reminder of our club's commitment to both our friendship with Cameron University and our desire to take care of this fragile but remarkable planet we all share."
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.
