An Arbor Day Event Impresses Reporter Amy Lieu

Here’s Amy’s first-hand account…

Arbor Day 2012 put on by The Tree Musketeers was my very first story for El Segundo TV. I was so excited to cover this event. I didn’t quite know what to expect, but the kids blew me away.

The “Tree Musketeers,” merely in their teens, led the adults. They trained, facilitated and put together the entire event.  Adults were not even allowed to give interviews! During the interviews, every Tree Musketeer I spoke to was considerably eloquent. I soon found out that the non-profit organization enrolls the kids in public speaking training courses.  I felt as if I was speaking to adults! They both surprised and impressed me. In fact, they inspired me with their poise, maturity and passion.

At the end, I was very happy to join their special tree-planting ceremony. The tree-planting group held hands, gathered in a circle, and recited a promise to protect our Earth. I was right in the middle of the action!

It was a joy and honor to cover this meaningful event that both empowers the youth and helps our environment.

Past Mayor Eric Busch says it’s a feel-good event, and I couldn’t agree more.
