COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) – It was a very special day on Saturday for the Rotary Club of Columbus.

Saturday marks the start of the club's centennial tree planting project. Club members spent the morning planting in Dinglewood Park.

Organizers say the trees are an investment into the future.

“This is generational and it’s for the future and as we look around today, it’s adults and children, and in the years ahead, these trees in this park will provide serenity and solace and safety for all of the citizens in our community," Michael Siverstein said, the 100th president of the Rotary Club.

The project is to honor 100 years of the rotary club in Columbus.
