MEMBERS of the Emon Masonic Lodge 179 on Saturday conducted a tree-planting activity on Airport Road.

Lodge worshipful master Joel Subang said family members, friends and other volunteers also participated in the event.

He said they planted 40 flame trees and other flowering plants in the area.

He added that the CNMI Division of Forestry provided the seedlings, and will help maintain the area, including the watering of the plants.

"We just want to give back to Mother Earth to help maintain the island’s beautiful and clean environment,” Subang said.

The lodge’s secretary, very worshipful Bong Malasarte, said they want to help keep Saipan green and more attractive.

On Sept. 19, the Emon Masonic Lodge 179 will join the International Coastal Cleanup. The freemasons have also partnered with the Saipan Rotary Club in “adopting” and maintaining Suicide Cliff.
