On December 5, students at Doby’s Mill Elementary school participated in Kershaw County’s Soil and Water Conservation District’s celebration of Arbor Day. Donna Douglas explained when Arbor Day is recognized. “Arbor Day is the first Friday in December, that is when we celebrate it in South Carolina because that is the best time to plant. It’s celebrated at different times in different states,” Douglas explained. Students participated in an assembly honoring Arbor Day and performed skits and songs in honor of Arbor Day. “Every year the conservation district chooses a school to participate in Arbor Day … Boykin Tree farm donates a tree and plants it for us every year on those school grounds. This was actually the first time we had a dedication” Douglas said.
