The Town of Rocky Mountain House planted three trees this week honouring former councillors.
The program was started in 2012.
“It is an honourable thing to run for public office and serve in local government. All three former councillors being recognized today served our community for 10 years each: a noteworthy achievement,” said Mayor Tammy Burke.
“I’d also like to acknowledge two other previous councillors whose terms ended in 2017: Randall Sugden, for four years on council, and Manfred Ullman for seven years.”
Fred Nash and Sheila Mizera each chose to have a flowering crab tree planted in their names. Donald Verehesen chose a Siberian larch.
Mizera and Verhesen served as councillors between 2007 and 2017. Nash served as councillor from 2004 to 2007 and as mayor from 2010 to 2017.
