In May 2011, a tornado touched down in Joplin, Mo that ravaged and destroyed most of the city and caused 162 fatalities. Flo Valley along with many others across the nation joined hands to assist in the relief efforts for the citizens of Joplin. Flo Valley raised $2,000 that was matched dollar for dollar by the Arbor Day Foundation.
The SGA planted a maple tree behind the Terry M. Fischer Theatre, near the time capsule, in memory of the Missourians that lost their lives and to commemorate the relief efforts. The tree dedication will be held on Wednesday, June 20, 2012 from 11 am to 1 pm. There will also be an icecream social immediately after the ceremony to celebrate the achievement.
