CLARK, NJ – To celebrate its 10th year in the community and in honor of Arbor Day, ProCare Rehabilitation LLC donated a tree to the Township of Clark in a ceremony held Tuesday in front of Town Hall. The tree, a red maple, is planted alongside Westfield Avenue in front of the township tennis courts.
The tree was chosen to symbolize the Company’s growth and in recognition of its future in the township. Company owner, Dean Kapetanakis, explained, “We will continue to flourish as the community flourishes.”
ProCare Rehabilitation LLC has realized significant growth over its 10 years of operations. “We started with one therapist and now have four, we started in a 900-square-foot space and are now in a 4,000-square-foot facility,” said company representative Mary Clare Vogt.
Attending the dedication were Mayor Sal Bonnacorso, ProCare Rehabilitation owner Dean Kapetanakis, Department of Public Works Supervisor Scott McCabe, and DPW Director Joe Bonnacorso. The tree was planted by DPW workers Adam Lambert and Eric Johnson.
According to the Arbor Day Foundation, street trees, those planted between the sidewalk and the street, are vitally important to the life of a community. They provide practical benefits in cleaning the air and reducing storm water runoff, but also provide a natural beauty and visually enhance the environment.
