Altrusa celebrates Earth Day
Members of our Environmental Committee offered their thoughts and ideas about Earth Day and the importance of finding ways to take better care of "Mother Earth". A basket of environmental tips was passed around, two moving essays were read, and each member described her special costume and its significance for helping our environment.
The presentation was capped off by an enthusiastic rendition of the song "Dirt Made My Lunch" which celebrates "dirt" for being the source of the foods we grow. Carol Parker accompanied the "Not Ready for Prime Time Environmental Committee Singers" on guitar. Earlier this year, Carol taught this song to students at Passage Charter school as part of the programs related to what they were learning about composting and recycling.
