Test drive electric and hybrid cars at Green Day [Russett]

Happy Earth Day!

Monday, April 22, we celebrate Earth Day. Did you know the first Earth Day was held April 22, 1970, and in the 1990s it went global?

No matter how big or small, we can all make a difference, not just on Earth Day but everyday.

Come join the Russett Green Committee — whose members are Gerri Hanus, John Hansen, Michele Floam, Rob Newman and Tim Reyburn — on May 4 for their sixth annual Green Day Event at the Russett Community Center, bathhouse and surrounding parking lots. From 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., more than 25 exhibitors, displaying their green products, providing green technology information, offering giveaways, samples or raffles, will be available as well as opportunities to test drive electric and hybrid cars. Free hot dogs and drinks will also be available.

Bring the whole family and munch on popcorn while watching a free screening of "Vanishing Bees" and a documentary on electric cars from 5 to 7 p.m. in the Russett bathhouse.

If you want to learn ways to reduce your carbon footprint by discovering new green products for your home and personal care as well as test drive electric and hybrid cars, this is the place to be. Best of all, it's free. For details, go to the Facebook page, Russett Green Day Celebration. For inquiries, go to GreenDay@russett.org.

Looking for that one of a kind item? Stop by Russett's annual Yard Sale being held May 18, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., at the Russett Community Center, KinderCare and bathhouse parking lots.

To my husband, Tim, happy 25th wedding anniversary on April 23.
