Cycling Scotsman spreads the green

If you happen upon the tree planting this afternoon at 780 NW 127th Ave., Miami, look for a friendly fellow wearing kilts. He's Rob Roy McGregor, a cycling Scotsman who has been traveling around to help plant trees in places that need some green. Ask him to tell you about his interesting mission.

Today's planting is the final one in a series sponsored by the NFL in conjunction with the Super Bowl and the Florida Division of Forestry. So far, trees have been planted at
  • Tamiami Park
  • A.D. Barnes Park
  • McMillan Park
  • Cinco de Mayo Park, Homestead,
  • and Southridge Senior High School.

I had the pleasure of meeting the kilt-clad Scotsman last weekend when he stopped by the cyclocross event sponsored by Mack cycle at Fairchild. He IS a really nice man, and gently spreading the word a person at a time. Way to make a difference Rob Roy! Makes me proud to be your Scots kinswoman.
