Cotteral Elementary School had a few special guests and a tree planting on Friday morning to celebrate Arbor Day.
Betsy Randolph from the Guthrie Forestry Advisory Board spoke to the students to introduce the guests. Jared Casada from OG&E talked to the students about the importance of trees and asked them what they are used for. Some of the students replied with, “wood for our fires” and “lettuce for our salad.”

Mayor Chuck Burtcher then gave a short speech proclaiming, “I Chuck Burtcher, mayor of the city of Guthrie, hereby acknowledge Harbor Day on March 30, 2012.”
Special guest Bill Miracle showed the students his Native American style flute, followed by a song.
The students went outside and each got a chance to help plant a tree for the playground with the help of the teachers and OG&E workers.
