** **Vendor Opportunities Available! - 4/24 Silver City Earth Day Event
The annual Earth Day celebration in Penny Park will be on April 24th 
from 10-2pm. This year will be the 40th anniversary of Earth Day so we 
are planning several special events and encouraging participants to help 
make this a fun and interactive event for everyone that attends.

Special events this year include: planting a tree to replace some of 
those destroyed by last year's fire, creating a time capsule holding 
memorabilia from this 40th anniversary celebration and burying it under 
a rosemary bush. There will be various performers in the amphitheater 
throughout the day. Also this year will be the first annual electronic 
waste collection event.

If you'd like to participate, fill out the registration form and return 
to the organizing committee by April 10. If you have additional 
questions please contact Carolyn Smith  Tuesday- Saturday at the Silver 
City Food Co-op at 388-2343.

/Green Building, the Evolution of Products & Practices/, lecture by 
Steve Hale of Hale & Sun Construction and Director of Build Green NM.
Open to the public. Luncheon fees:  $20 members, $25 non-members, $15 
EGB members.

Mr. Hale will speak on the topic of how builder's practices change when 
they "go green".  This small custom builder has evolved his own 
construction practices for residential homes.  As director of Build 
Green NM he has also seen that evolution in other builders as well.  
Come see how homes are changing in this growing market niche!
