April is Earth Month

Park build community-NRPA

Help us win $20,000 to improve one of the Parks in Clinton!

April is Earth Month! Forty-two years ago, Earth Day was established to create awareness and appreciation of our precious – and increasingly fragile – planet. Celebrated on April 22nd, Earth Day has evolved from a day, to a week and now to a month!

What can you do to help? The NRPA (National Parks and Recreation Association) is running an initiative to help improve community parks. By going to the following website you can create a log-in, and vote for the parks they are showcasing–just click the get started button. Furthermore, we have the chance to win $20,000 to improve one of the parks in town.

In conjunction with our Savage Field Renovation project we hope that you will nominate that park. $20,000 would go along way in helping us to improve the park. Every nomination gets us another entry into the drawing.
