Arbor Day always reminds me of the Little Rascals. I was introduced to Arbor Day by Spanky and his Gang. Do you remember the episode where Spanky plays hooky to ditch his school's pageant and midgets disguise themselves as children and they perform a racy little number in the show?
No need for truancy for St. Augustine Beach's Arbor Day ceremonies. They are set for 5:30 p.m., Friday, at City Hall, A1A South.
There will even be a "pageant" of sorts, featuring the St. Augustine High School guitar ensemble, a poetry contest featuring St. Augustine High School winners and R.B. Hunt poster contest winners.
After the program, there will be free food and beverages thanks to the St. Augustine Beach Tree Board and Beautification Advisory Committee.
Writing this is giving me a yearning for those Little Rascals, NetFlix here I come.
