Circle City Rotary Celebrates Arbor Day

April’s Arbor Day event included a Tree Dedication to honor Rhonda Miller.
Each spring the Circle City Rotary Club and the City of Corona – City Government partner to celebrate Arbor Day, an occasion recognized throughout the world dedicated to planting trees. This year’s observance was particularly memorable as the service club planted a tree to the memory of Rhonda Miller, a local leader in philanthropy and an example of the Circle City’s best.
Rhonda worked along with her husband Chris and mother-in-law, Pat Miller as an owner/operator of Thomas Miller Mortuary, the oldest business in Corona, which the family has owned for nearly fifty years.
The tree, planted between City Hall and the Historic Civic Center, will honor the contributions Rhonda Miller made to Corona, which includes her commitment to, “The Hunger Project,” a program that feeds the needy, operated by Crossroads Christian Church.
A member of the Circle City Rotary, Mark Peabody, of Peabody Engineering stated at the dedication, “Rhonda was born in Kentucky, but was destined to be part of Corona.” Mark urged all in attendance to, “Consider this tree as a place of rest and renewal and inspire us all to live our lives with Rhonda’s passion each and every day.”
