There will be plenty to do. Nearly 100 vendors, crafters, businesses and non-profit groups will be at the festival – including the MA Watershed Coalition that will offer information about keeping water clean and healthy.
4-H Camp Middlesex will have food for sale and children’s games will be run by the NMRHS Relay for Life Committee. Continuous entertainment including live music will be at the Townsend Common gazebo.
Items you can bring to Earth Day include returnable bottles and cans for Boy Scout Troop 10; outdoor plants for the free plant swap; ride-able, gently used bikes for Friends of Pepperell Recreation; and empty wine bottles for Blackmoon-Recycled Art.
Have boxes of files to be shredded? Sordano Real Estate has contracted with a paper shredding company and files can be shredded for free in minutes. Also, there will be a donated textiles competition among schools and people from surrounding towns can participate. The good textiles will be donated to TEO and the not so good to Bay State Textiles for recycling.
Rain Date is Sunday April 26th, noon-4 pm. If the ground is still too wet, an alternate location on pavement will be arranged. (If needed, there will be a sign posted on the Townsend Common with the alternate location.)
