Northeast Queens will soon be a little more green.

The Bayside–Whitestone Lions Club sponsored its first ever tree giveaway on Saturday, April 28 at A&S Nursery in Whitestone. In partnership with New York Restoration Project and Million Trees NYC, the Lions distributed over 100 trees to local residents. The event was so successful that Club President Paul Vallone promised to double the number of trees available for next year’s event.

Next up for the Bayside–Whitestone Lions Club is the First Annual Scholarship Dinner at Verdi’s in Whitestone. Everyone is welcome to attend. For more information, call 718-428-7285.
