PLV50 Gets Roots (PLV)
It’s time to get back to your roots as Pleasantville hosts the 50th Anniversary Tree Planting Ceremony on Wednesday, April 30, to mark the end of Earth Month.
Copper Beech Tree Planting
Wednesday, April 30, 12:15 p.m.–12:45 p.m.
Marks Hall Traffic Circle, PLV
In 1962, Wayne Marks ’28, vice chairman of the General Foods Corporation, and his wife Helen, donated their sprawling home on Bedford Road in Pleasantville to Pace. This event was the impetus behind Pace’s expansion to Westchester. However, there was one string attached to the gift; an informal understanding that the gigantic copper beech tree near the house would remain undisturbed. Though it remained undisturbed and thriving for the better part of 50 years, the tree had ceased to thrive and had to be removed this past fall.
On April 30, we honor the promise we made to the Marks family and recommit Pace to another 50 years in Pleasantville with the planting of a brand new copper beech tree.
Senior VP and COO for the Westchester Campus Bill McGrath will lead the ceremony.
