Woodmen Planting

McALESTER — Modern Woodmen of American members gave a lasting gift to the community. Members of the McAlester Modern Woodmen chapter gathered at Chadick Park to plant two trees. The project was part of the Plant A Tree Program, a nationwide program introduced by Modern Woodmen for its members in 2004. “The name Modern Woodmen honors the pioneer woodmen who cleared the forest to build homes and secure futures for their families. Modern Woodmen offers financial services to help clear away members financial burdens. And planting trees is an important way to create a secure future for families, communities and the enviroment,”local Modern Woodmen Betty Balkman says.
