On Friday, April 21, 2017 Earth Day will kick-off with a Bash downtown at Noon, including a free thank-you lunch for volunteers, sponsor recognition & educational booths. The rally builds a sense of community & cohesiveness to the day’s activities & is an opportunity to recognize the thousands of hours these volunteers will put in. After the kick-off bash & lunch, team captains will lead the volunteers out to their project locations for an afternoon giving back to the community. This is AWESOME!
