Decked out in Earth Day finery
On April 22, Earth Day, community members of Glen Ellen gathered to help pick up trash during the Glen Ellen Forum-sponsored Earth Day Tidy Our Town event, with more than 20 people picking up trash along the roads of Glen Ellen. Volunteers included (left to right) Poppy Darby, Kanyon Mann (age 6), Steve Raffaini, Kaden Mann (age 8), and Savannah Raffaini (age 12). One young man received school community service extra credit for participating. In total, 247.2 pounds of mixed trash, 75 pounds of recyclable materials, and several items in the “weight unknown” category, like a shopping cart and a tire, were collected. Recycled materials are being donated to the Recycle Program at Jack London State Park. Photo by Mari Jo Dickerson.
