Mr. Gordon Friedrick started giving out trees 34 years ago to Paradise Hill, Marshall, Maidstone, Lashburn and Hillmond schools. Trees were given to Kindergarten-Grade 3 pupils. Approximately 800-1000 Colorado Blue Spruce trees were given each year. Mr. Gordon states that there comes a time when you have reached an age, that it is not that easy delivering the trees to the schools. In saying that, this will be his last year doing so. During that period 30,600 trees have be given to students. On behalf of the staff and students of Paradise Hill School we would like to thank you, Mr. Gordon Friedrick.
