Ricardo Maisonneuve, Director of FAU’s Students Advocating Volunteer Involvement (SAVI), helped plant a palm tree outside the Twin Palms Center for the Disabled on September 10th.  SAVI members planted two trees in honor of 9/11’s 10th anniversary.  “The palms represent the towers,” Maisonneuve said.  SAVI students said their hope is the trees will serve as a permanent memorial to the tragedy. SAVI is a Student Government agency that provides students with community service and volunteer opportunities.
