Tidy Up the Town event is set for April 22


April 13, 2017

Earth Day 2017 is Saturday, April 22 and friends of the Pioneer Community Association and Cathlamet Community Center invite the public to join them for some much needed Spring cleaning. It’s time to polish up our curb appeal and make our little town shine after a long, wet winter. Last October 22, more than 50 volunteers turned out on National Make a Difference Day for the first Tidy Up the Town event. Much was accomplished and they are excited about what we can be achieved with even more people. They will meet at 9:00 a.m., in the Community Center, 101 Main St., Cathlamet, for coffee, doughnuts, instructions and a group photo. Wear gloves and suitable clothing and bring shovels, rakes, hoes and wheelbarrows. Plan on spending three hours digging, pulling, scraping, washing and laughing.

For more information contact Suzanne Holmes or 430-3771. The first Earth Day on April 22, 1970, activated 20 million Americans from all walks of life and is widely credited with launching the modern environmental movement. The passage of the landmark Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, Endangered Species Act and many other groundbreaking environmental laws soon followed. Twenty years later, Earth Day went global, mobilizing 200 million people in 141 countries and lifting environmental issues onto the world stage. More than 1 billion people now participate in Earth Day activities each year, making it the largest civic observance in the world. Plan on joining us them and add Cathlamet to the list of those making Earth Day matter.
