A great deal to my shock and delight, I was presented the inexperienced light to system the celebration, and the initially Hilliard Earth Day Celebration arrived to be in 2013.

It was a quite little party, with a tree-planting ceremony, litter cleanup and mulching pursuits on the Roger A. Reynolds Municipal Park grounds, a recycled artwork contest operate by a regional Girl Scout troop, a rain barrel course, games and a show of electric powered motor vehicles that ended up charging on mobile photo voltaic panels and a wind turbine parked outside the house the Hilliard Neighborhood Middle.
