MASSENA -- The Massena Rotary Club remembered Rotarian Michael Best, formerly of Brasher, with a tree planted at Springs Park in his memory.

Best, known for his volunteerism, community involvement and career in insurance and music, died in 2011. On hand was his wife Julia, his children and grandchildren.

A memorial plate was placed at the base of the tree after meaningful words by Carter Montross.

Best's family - pictured here with the Massena Rotary Club - requested that the tree be planted near the band shell at Springs Park where music is often heard.
