At 4 p.m. on Monday afternoon, family, friends, classmates and fellow lifeguards of Michael Proudfit gathered at Memorial Park for the planting of a memorial tree in Proudfit's honor. Proudfit died following a car crash in February.
The tree, a Royal Raindrops Flowering Crab, was purchased with donations collected by Proudfit's classmates at Elk County Catholic High School.
Clythera Hornung, a member of the Shade Tree Commission who was on hand at the event, explained that this particular type of tree is coincidentally appropriate for Proudfit, given his love of pink.
"I didn't know of Michael's love for pink, but the flowers on his tree are pink, so that's very appropriate," Hornung said.
