Community Positivi-Tree

Pickett's Run Park corner of River Road and Wayne Street, Bluffton, United States

We want to remember all the good that this year has brought so, we are creating a community Positivi-tree!  We have dedicated a pine tree at Pickett's Run Park (along the story walk trail on East Washington Street) to be decorated with positive messages, celebrations, and achievements. If you are thankful for the birth of a new baby, a recent engagement, time with loved ones, or have words of inspiration write your message on one of your plastic ornaments from home and hang it on the tree through the month of December. There is a lot to be thankful for and sharing your joy can brighten the day of anyone who stops to read the messages of hope.
