After outgrowing its first 800-square-foot location at 422 W. Gallatin St., Liberty Trading has moved across the street to a 5,000-square-foot building at 425 W. Gallatin St.
And even that is starting to fill up.
Kull Funeral Homes of Altamont and St. Elmo have renewed their affiliation with the Lofty Oaks Assocation, a New Hampshire organization dedicated to reforestation and conservation efforts in Illinois.
The firm arranges to have a tree planted for each service that they perform, in order to provide a living memorial in honor of the deceased and to renew the forest life of Illinois.
The memorial trees are planted in the spring and fall. This program is part of a large endeavor to restore the landscape with the beauty of living trees.
