Two Autumn Brilliance Serviceberry trees were planted in front of the school near the dance studio at the end of the event. Notes were written to Brooke on bioabsorbable paper. The trees were spaced apart so one day a hammock may be placed between them. Thanks to Dawn Bouslog for providing the trees.  Thanks to all who made this event possible and who came out to support the family.
