A tree planting ceremony in honor of those who served in World War I will be at 11 a.m. Feb. 13 at the McNab, Ark.
"We're asking veterans from the surrounding areas to attend," Mayor James Conway said.
The ceremony is held in conjunction with the WWI Memorial Tree Centennial Commemoration partnership with the Arkansas Forestry Commission.
Through the partnership, Arkansans are urged to plant trees in 2018 to remember the 71,862 Arkansans who served during the World War I, including the 2,183 who died while in service.
The goal is to have a memorial tree in each of the state's 75 counties by the time the commemoration concludes at the end of the year.
The Forestry Commission is providing 75 2-year-old willow oak trees for the project, according to the committee.
