Local officials will gather for a brief ceremony marking the official planting of Sidney’s Bicentennial Tree. One of the city’s official trees will be planted on the grounds on the south side of the Shelby County Courthouse. The tree will be planted on the opposite side of the walkway where Shelby County’s Bicentennial Tree was planted last year.
Presenters include Shelby County Commissioner Boib Guillozet and Sidney Parks and Recon Director Duane Gaier. Others scheduled to speak include Sidney Tree Board Chair and Bicentennial Committee Member Ann Asher, Certified Arborist and Bicentennial Committee Member Joyce Reier, Shelby County Commissioner and Bicentennial Committee Member Tony Bornhorst, and Bicentennial Committee Co-Chair and Sidney Mayor Mike Barhorst.
Providing music for the occasion will be the Jock Family Singers. The group, including Melissa (Goffena) Jock, Cameron, Elizah, and Elizabeth Jock, have been singing together for several years.
