In Memory of Savannah Domann
We are sad to announce the passing of one of the newer members of the BTG tribe, Savannah Domann. Savannah volunteered alongside her father, Tony Domann, to plant trees with our Heartland Tree Alliance program in the Indian Mound neighborhood in May. Savannah’s light will continue to shine through the beauty of trees. Tony, her father, has been a BTG friend for many years through our relationship with Posty Cards, a local environmentally friendly greeting card business. We thank Tony for the opportunity to work with his daughter, and send love and comfort to Savannah’s family and friends.
The following post was taken directly from her memorial site:
