Earth Day celebration, other activities slated

First and second grade students from Bailey Avenue Elementary School will perform a kid's play at 2 p.m., followed by a live performance of original Earth Day songs by Pat Ostrander.

Eat.Sleep.Funk. is also slated to perform during the event.

Throughout the afternoon, the celebration will also include various kid-friendly events, including face painting, seed planting, worm composting and a story hour. Kids and adults can bring their bikes to the event as there will be bike safety information provided by Paul and Corinna Maggy of Mountain Riders.

Michelle Ouellette and youth group members of Unitarian Universal Fellowship will be making nontoxic household cleaners during the event. A perennial swap, in which people bring a perennial and swap with another brought by someone else, will also be held.

Information tables will also be set up by local organizations and individuals, providing information on various topics.

"And, if anyone wants to have a table there, we're asking people to contact Marti Martin as soon as possible at 593-5072," said Cronk-Duquette.

Food will be provided by a local vendor. People are also encouraged to visit downtown restaurants.
