The Gretna Arbor Society presents the Relict Oak Certificate to Ron Sawyer, the group’s longest member, on May 15 at Leo Royal Park. A lifelong Gretna resident, Sawyer joined the Gretna Arbor Society in 1999, just 12 years after its establishment in 1989. Sawyer is celebrated as a Gretna Arbor Society emeritus member. He is a veteran, former city councilman and former Gretna Citizen of the Year. Ron spent many years watering the newly planted trees in all of Gretna’s parks. He is not a voting member of the Tree Board, but continues to give advice to the Arbor Society. Pictured, from left: Dave Kovar, John Wokken, Ron Sawyer, Jim Keepers and Jerry Imig.
