Cherry Blossom Day recognized in Irmo

The Town of Irmo recognized March 25 as Cherry Blossom Day at the regular town council meeting on Tuesday, Mary 21. The town planted cherry trees in the Irmo Town Park and for the last six years celebrates the Irmo Cherry Blossom Festival.

Cherry trees originated in Japan and were introduced in the United States after World War II when more than 3,000 trees were sent to Washington D.C. to restore friendships and alliances.
