“From the President’s Desk”

April 2012

Wow, talk about forgetting the diet at our dinner @ Gino’s! The dinner was very good and the dessert tray was fabulous. The portions were very generous and the cheesecake was awesome.

After just attending the Health Expo, many vendors are going “green”. I believe more and more importance should be placed on Earth Day. Did you know in many elementary schools, after Halloween and Christmas, Earth Day is the third largest celebrated holiday. It is now observed in 175 countries and is the largest secular modern day holiday in the world. April 22 is the first official day of Spring in the Northern hemisphere and of Fall in the Southern hemisphere and was chosen to be Earth Day for this reason. Below are a couple of facts and very simple things that we can all do:

  • Recycling one aluminum can saves enough energy to watch a TV for three hours – it’s equivalent to half a gallon of gasoline.
  • If every newspaper was recycled, we could save about 250,000,000 trees each year. It is estimated only 27% of all American newspapers are recycled.
  • More than 20,000,000 Hershey’s Kisses are wrapped each day, using 133 square miles of tinfoil. All that foil is recyclable.

I’m sure we have all enjoyed our beautiful Spring and seeing all the flowers and trees blooming. I don’t ever remember sweating in March working in the yard! I hope to see you at Christopher’s to hear our guest speaker, Bergetta Beardsley with United Way.
