The Point Pleasant Borough Environmental Commission is excited to announce that the 2012 Earth Day Celebration will be held at Riverfront Park on Saturday, April 21st from noon to 4pm (raindate is April 22). This is the 9th Earth Day Celebration and the event showcases vendors of green products/ideas, environmental organizations and local businesses. There will be games and rides for the kids as well as food and music for all. The theme for this year’s 4th and 5th grade t-shirt poster contest is “Strive to be Mosquito Free,” concentrating on what to do at home to safely control mosquitoes. The focal point for this year’s Earth Day theme will be to teach the uses of alternative methods for mosquito control and to stress that ‘Mosquito Control Starts at Home.’ The Commission is accepting applications for all exhibitors and is always looking for sponsors and donations. Exhibitor and sponsor applications are located at http://www.env.ptboro.com/ed/. All proceeds fund the annual scholarship awarded to a local high school senior, the savings bonds and prizes for the winners of the poster contest, and the operations and incidentals of the event itself.
