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. <br>
<br>
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. <br>
<br>
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&nbsp; Tuesday- Saturday at the Silver
City Food Co-op at 388-2343.<br>
