Saugerties Arbor Day planting honors Marie Post

Join the Saugerties Village Tree Commission and the town of Saugerties in honoring the late Marie Post’s lifelong work and commitment to caring for animals in need. A dogwood tree will be planted at Saugerties’ town offices at 4 High Street on Arbor Day, Friday, April 27 at 3 p.m. The tree will stand as a living memorial to Marie’s inspiring legacy of helping all in need, both two-legged and four-legged. Among her many accomplishments was the creation of the Town of Saugerties Animal Shelter and the establishment of the Animal Emergency Fund in 1999, which pays for the treatment of sick and injured cats and dogs and subsidizes spaying and neutering. Everyone is welcome to attend and share their fond memories of Marie Post. To learn more about the village Tree Commission, visit
