Kinnelon Conserves 4th Annual Earth Day Fair

Kinnelon's own Kinnelon Conserves - a community energy reduction initiative - celebrates its 4th annual Earth Day Fair on Saturday, April 24th, 2010 at the Pearl Miller School in Kinnelon from noon until 4pm.

The 'short blurb' describes the day as follows: "There will be outdoor and indoor attractions for all ages, including games, crafts, live music, films, student exhibits, "green” products and services displayed by a variety of local businesses, and exhibits by non-profit environment groups. Donations (cheerfully accepted, children & students free) will include entry to all of the events, light refreshments and a ticket for several prize drawings."

The press release provides even more detail on what to expect and bring [e.g., old cell phones, sneakers and electronics; ideas for a greener Kinnelon; your own bag and bottle].
