    These pictures were taken of the ceremonial planting of the Washington Elm tree by the Philip Livingston Chapter of the D.A.R. in the square of the Howell Carnegie Library, Howell, Michigan. The tree and the ceremony was in honor of the Bicentennial of the birth of George Washington.   The photograph was taken by Ed Beach.
