The Baha’is of San Clemente commemorated the centenary of their leader’s visit to the United States on Sunday, July 1 by donating trees to Tierra Grande Park and celebrating with a Unity Picnic.
Nearly 150 members and non-members came to watch as two holly oak trees were uncovered. Mayor Pro Tem Tim Brown spoke to the crowd about unity and world peace before accepting the trees on behalf of the city.
In addition to the donation, there were activities for children, free burgers, live music and intimate socialization.
The Baha’i Faith was founded in Iran in 1844 and has more than five million followers, according to the Baha’is website in the United States.
