Arbor Day was first observed at Farmington State Normal School in 1886 and became a long-standing tradition. Arbor Day exercises included speeches, readings, poetry, music, the singing of the class ode, and planting the class tree by the graduating class. Each class chose the type of tree it wanted to plant. This program is for the second annual Arbor Day Celebration at F.S.N.S., held on May 10,1887.
