On April 22, there will be an Earth Day event at the Alread Fun Park and surrounding area. Volunteers will meet at the park at 9 a.m. and will clean along the highways until about noon, when a lunch will be served at the park, followed by a horseshoe tournament. I’ll have more information about registration soon.
