SEYMOUR >> More than 190 new trees will sprout up around town this year, thanks to the Seymour Lions Club doing its part to help students celebrate Arbor Day Friday.
Club members, accompanied by furry yellow mascot Seymour the Lion, visited each of the town’s fourth-grade classes at Bungay and Chatfield-LoPresti schools, distributing pine tree saplings for them to plant in their yards.
At Bungay School, Seymour the Lion — club member and past President Yvonne Lorincz — burst through the school’s front doors to the delight of squealing students. Armed with purple tote bags filled with the saplings, Lorincz, along with Club President Melissa A. Smith Poynton and club member Anne Barton, stopped by the school’s three fourth-grade classes to mark Arbor Day.
