    Many are the legends about palm trees.

    One says that Jesus commanded a palm tree to bend down so that He could pick dates for His mother, and that He promised in return to bless it, and that when He entered Jerusalem in triumph it would be with a palm branch in His hand as the people cried Hosannah.

    Tradition in some countries still says the palm tree — not the apple nor the fig — was the tree of knowledge in the Garden of Eden. And a palm tree is depicted in the state seal of South Carolina.

An attractive welcome to visitors and residents, it would be a memorial to citizens of the past; an honorarium to those of the present; and a hope and legacy to those of the future.
