Poet Fairmont Biorefining (formerly Flint Hills Resources) planted a white Dogwood, a Sioux Crape Myrtle and a Crimson King Maple in Exeter to recognize Earth Day. Participating from the plant were Adam Chrans, Jesse Fousek , Mike Jess, Thor Johnson, and Matt Pedersen. Exeter Village Board members Alan Michl and Jim Anderson joined them in planting the trees, along with Village Maintenance Supervisor John Mueller (not pictured).
The trees were planted in the downtown park lot close to where a gazebo and handicap swing will soon be installed.
POET Fairmont also had a team in Fairmont picking up trash at the local parks.
