Local Modern Woodmen of America members gave a lasting gift to the community on Aug. 19.
Members of the Woonsocket Modern Woodmen CHAPTER 12922 gathered at the Woonsocket baseball field to assist Rich Jensen and Donald Jemmings plant three trees, two autunm blaze and one silver maple.  Modern Woodmen members Jonathan, Aaron, Nathan and Megan Linke, Tony Luthi and Al Foos helped with the tree planting project.
The project was part of the “Plant A Tree Program”, a nationwide program introduced by Modern Woodmen for its members in 2004. Through the program and the help of its members, Modern Woodmen has planted thousands of trees across the United States.
“This project allows local Modern Woodmen members to give a gift to the community,” says Stacey Malde, local Modern Woodmen contact. “Planting trees is an important way to create a secure future for families, communities and the environment.”
Coordinated by local Modern Woodmen members, chapters provide opportunities to take part in social activities and community service projects to meet local needs. Youth service clubs provide young Modern Woodmen members with opportunities to volunteer, be patriotic, learn new skills, make friends and have fun.

This is accomplished through social, charitable and volunteer activities. Annually, Modern Woodmen and its members provide nearly $29 million and one million volunteer hours for community projects nationwide.
