I was a gift from Márton Lőrincz*. He planted me infront of Petőfi elementary school 70 years ago, March 1937 to be exact. People here have treated me well, see- I've grown and grown! Today I have a visitor, I think I've seen him on his first day at the school . I overheard him telling his friend (Kris) that he still remembers the wonderful days he spent with his friends around me. Of course, that made my day :)
*Márton Lőrincz = 1936's Olympic champion for Hungary's Light weight wrestling.
He had originally wanted to plant this tree at his birth place, Translyvania but couldn't. and I couldn't find the reason why it was finally decided to place the tree in szentes.
