Brookings' "Friend of Trees," Kathleen "Kay" Cheever passed away on January 9, 2002. She is honored in this annual event. Kay was a lifelong advocate for the planting, nurturing and appreciation of trees in the Brookings area. She served on the Brookings Arbor Day Committee since its inception; she initiated this event. She inspired us with her good humor and good cheer.
