Making Ridgewood a Little Greener

Ridgewood students helped plant a new street tree during an Arbor Day celebration on Fresh Pond Road last Friday morning, June 6. Sponsored by the Greater Ridgewood Restoration Corporation and Con Edison, the ceremony recognized the recent planting of a tree at the corner of Fresh Pond Road and Catalpa Avenue, across the way from P.S. 88 and the Peter Cardella Senior Citizens Center. Among those who participated, as pictured, were fourth-graders from P.S. 88 along with the school’s principal, Robert Quintana, and special projects coordinator, Audrey Glass; City Council Member Elizabeth Crowley; Cardella Center Executive Director Barbara Toscano; and GRRC President Paul Kerzner and Executive Director Angela Mirabile.
