It may have officially been celebrated earlier this week, but Arbor Day isn't over with until the residents of Adams say so.
That's because Adams is the birthplace of Arbor Day creator J. Sterling Morton.
It was a big celebration with even some friends there from the Thompson Park zoo.
The event is put on every year by the South Jefferson Chamber of Commerce and is considered by many to be the first real sign of spring.
“It’s just a spring celebration,” said the chamber of commerce’s Nina Hershey.
“We’re just proud of our little community and the chamber has always sponsored this,” she said.
It's also when the community gives out its Citizen of the Year award. This year, it went to longtime resident Marcia Reed.
