FAYETTE COUNTY EARTH DAY 2008: “Becoming Cleaner and Greener!”

Fayette County Earth Day will be celebrated on Saturday, April 12th, from 8:00am – 3:30pm. This inaugural event will include several community clean-up and beautification projects followed by a fun-filled ‘green themed’ fair at Fayetteville’s Main Street and Heritage Park.

The Girl Scouts of Service Unit 616 are ‘Going Green’ and in partnership with the City of Fayetteville and Fayette County, are hosting Fayette’s first ever EARTH DAY Celebration.

“We are eager, excited, and honored to host Earth Day and promote the Scout motto ‘leave it BETTER than you found it’ “, explains organizer and Girl Scout leader, Joan Fecteau.
Fayette County Earth Day will feature a wide-range of onsite recycling demonstrations, environment displays and demonstrations, and interactive and educational booths by many local youth, non-profit and small business groups. Whatever your interest, Fayette County Earth Day will have something for you.

Fayette County Earth Day promises to be an amazing demonstration of how the everyday decisions we make in life affect our environment. It is a chance to better understand the issues affecting our community while taking direct action to be part of the solution. Your ideas and participation are important. Together, we can make Fayette County’s first Earth Day a terrific one! For more information on how to get involved, contact: fayette_earth_day@comcast.net.
