This beautiful memorial commemorates three lives cut tragically short. But it is much more than just that. It is also a testament to the strength of the families whose lives were shattered by this tragedy and the work they have done to ensure that their loved ones' lives were not lost in vain.
The Golden Tree will also serve as a reminder to all of us that we must work together to ensure that farm work is safe, and that the men and women who work in farming return home safely to their loved ones at the end of the work day. -Darryl Walker, Past President
