Celebrate Earth Day with FBT

Here’s another fun way to celebrate Earth Day today, Wednesday April 22nd.

FBT and Weegee’s Lounge is partnering with the Ames Middle School staff in organizing a great Earth Day event to get the kids involved in the spirit of the day and clean up our neighborhood.

Here’s a quick snapshot of the day’s events:

Volunteer activities:

  1. Walk with the kids and their teachers from Ames Middle School along a route centered on the Bloomingdale Trail and help with a neighborhood clean up and “cheerlead” to spur the kids on. If you want to volunteer, arrive at 12:30 at Ames Middle School soccer field (1920 N. Hamlin at Armitage) and contact David Rodriguez with Ames to check-in.

  2. Man debris collection sites at strategic positions along the Trail and help encourage the kids. If you want to volunteer, stop be the Albany/Whipple park up materials at 1:30 to pick up some bags and gloves prior to heading to the collection site.

  3. Provide a strong showing from the community at the Albany/Whipple park to welcome the kids, finish the clean up and listen to a presentation about Earth Day and The Bloomingdale Trail. If you can join, try and join us at around 2:00

Thanks everyone and Happy Earth Day! Please forward this e-mail to anyone else you think may be interested in participating.
