Honoring The Great White Oak Tree
For 619 years this magnificent tree served as a gathering place in historic Bernards Township. Sadly, it’s life came to an end in 2017 and the tree was taken down. Since then, our community has come together in many ways to celebrate the life of that Great White Oak Tree. The wood has been shared far and wide, with branches and trunk sections on display and the building of a great communion table for the Presbyterian Church. New life is springing forth in the form of seedlings planted by local gardeners, all in the name of continuing the legacy of this extraordinary tree.
This exhibit featured art in many media, including painting, drawing, poetry, sculpture, music, film and a community art project.

Ridge High School Students: “The Midas Touch”
