Inclement Weather Update as of 04/27/2023: The Arbor Day in Graham’s Tree Planting Ceremony scheduled for Friday, April 28 will be moving over to a rain plan due to the chance of storms and gusty winds for the day. We will have an Arbor Day Ceremony as a Tree City USA community but will relocate to the City Hall Council Chambers (201 South Main Street, Graham, NC 27253) and live stream the program on the City of Graham’s YouTube. The ceremony will begin at 3:00pm. We will have a special Tree Dedication on May 26 at 3:00pm at South Graham Park as part of the First Responder Friday program. The tree planted is in honor and memory of our City of Graham and Graham Fire Department friend and colleague, Mr. Allen Maness. Arbor Day in Graham Ceremony
