Bernards Township Students
To celebrate the 600-year life of the oldest white oak tree in North America, the children of Bernards Township have joined together to honor the historic Basking Ridge great white oak tree in writing and in art.
This effort was made possible with the support of a few noteworthy volunteers; Melanie Dupuis from the William Annin Middle School in Bernards Township, Meg Wastie, Trustee at the Historical Society of the Somerset Hills, and Brooks Betz, the Program lead at the historical society. Each of them volunteered their personal time to create the programs and worked with the children that created this most memorable collection.
Children from kindergarten through to Ridge High School participated in the "Tree Views" writing contest and the William Annin "Tree Shirt Contest & Fundraiser". Every elementary school in Bernards Township is represented including Cedar Hill Elementary School, Oak Street Elementary School, Mount Prospect Elementary School, Liberty Corner Elementary School, and St. James Catholic School.
