The last tree was planted this week in honor of Willanna Rila. Eight of the trees (as was the case here) have been planted on the Iowa Wesleyan College campus, two at Saunders Park, two at the Saunders School campus, two at the Civic Center, one each at East Lake Park and the Log Village on the Old Threshers grounds. Pictured with the tree are Rotarians, from left, Jim Bishop, Don Panek, club president, Larry Brenizer, Doug Deardorff and Clint Rila (husband of Willanna).
