Mattapoisett raises flag for Arbor Day

Apr 30, 2021

MATTAPOISETT — The Mattapoisett Tree Committee raised a flag in recognition of Arbor Day on Friday, May 30.

The flag commemorates 10 years of Mattapoisett being a Tree City USA town, so designated by Tree City USA, a foundation that helps towns and cities manage and expand their number of public trees.

The flag was briefly flown under the U.S. flag at full mast, before being brought down to half mast in recognition of Selectman John DeCosta’s death on April 28.
