Thanks for making our Earth Day Celebration a big success!

Were you able to join us for our Earth Day Celebration on Saturday? If you were, thanks for coming out - you helped us set a new attendance record! If not, perhaps we'll see you next year.

A big round of applause and thanks to the many Recycling Volunteers who helped us at this event! We are so grateful to you all!
