happy Earth Day!

We celebrate Earth Day on April 22 every year to support protection of the environment. First celebrated in 1970 (I was at the kick-off event in Philadelphia), it's now coordinated by the Earth Day Network and recognized by more than 193 countries world-wide. One of its major initiatives is to plant more than seven-billion trees over the next five years.

We're celebrating at Kettering University in Flint MI by participating in a Recycling Challenge. If you're local, please drop your plastic water bottles off at the dumpster located by our bell tower!
