There is a new addition to the landscape northeast of City Hall in Newton. A young linden tree was planted before the cold weather arrived in memory of the late Senator Edward M. Kennedy. The NDCC donated funds to pay for the purchase, installation and care of this tree as part of Newton's Tree Sponsorship program. This is the third tree that has been sponsored by local Democrats. When the spring arrives, a commemorative plaque will be installed and there will be a formal dedication ceremony.
You can view photographs of the newly planted tree in our photo gallery.
