LEXINGTON (May 22, 2017) – A Greek proverb says that a society grows great when old men plant trees whose shade they know they shall never sit in.

While that wasn’t exactly the inspiration behind the planting of 35 trees and 32 shrubs on Polo Club Blvd. on Friday, May 19, it wasn’t far from it either.
The trees and shrubs were provided by the Keep Lexington Beautiful commission (KLB) and paid for by a $5,000 Keep America Beautiful grant funded by the UPS Foundation. Volunteers from UPS, the KLB, and employees of the city’s Division of Environmental Services, dug the holes and then planted the trees and shrubs between Winchester Road and Man o’ War Blvd.
