Earth Fair 2010
Earth Fair 2010 will be celebrated on Thursday, April 22, after school in the Poultney High School gym.
It's getting to be that time of year again. Last year, the school community held a "rockin'" Earth Fair celebration that drew about 300 people from all over the area to Poultney High Schoo. This year's Earth Fair theme is Old Ways, New Days.
"We will be looking at the practices of yesterday to learn how to be more environmentally sustainable and conscientious in our behaviors today. There are many creative ways to get involved with the Earth Fair. If you would like to participate and need help brainstorming ideas, please let me know," said Principal Jeanne Oakman.
