NEW PROVIDENCE, NJ - The New Providence Business and Professional Association visited students in Grades K-6 at Allen W. Roberts School and Salt Brook School on Friday to celebrate Arbor Day. The Association donated approximately 1250 saplings - white pines and Norway spruce - for the children to plant.

Gary Kapner, President of the New Providence Business & Professional Association said, "In celebration of Arbor Day, the New Providence Business & Professional Association was delighted to provide saplings to children in New Providence. We would like to thank Mayor Thoms and the children of New Providence for participating with us on this special day."

Reached for comment, Mayor John Thoms, who also participated in the event, told The Alternative Press, "I want to commend the Business and Professional Association for their foresight in supplying our school children with seedlings in honor of Arbor Day. Each child in AW Roberts and Salt Brook Schools was given a tree to plant and the children certainly appreciated the importance of trees in our everyday lives-from the air we breathe to the shade they provide us on warm days."

Rich Brugger, owner of Karate World in New Providence and participant in the day's events said, "It was my great pleasure to help out at the Arbor Day event. I thoroughly enjoyed being a guest in the elementary school classrooms and interacting with the children."
