Earth Day/ Arbor Day at the Denville Municipal Building 2011

Both Earth Day and Arbor Day were commemorated in Denville, April 29, 2011 by holding a Green Festival at the Denville Municipal Building. Individuals, from all walks of life participated in the event. Among the participants were;
Ann Felice of Let’s Create Art Studio showing her childrens’ project of designing recyclable bags,
Jeff Dickerson of Denville Foodtown showing his store’s newly installed solar panels and informing us of his Solar Day Event held at Denville Foodtown June 18, 2011.
Howie Shimm showing his amazing hydroponics project, growing vegetables and flowers without soil.

Councilman Nick Stecky (chair of the Green Committee), Phyllis Carey (Green Committee/Beautification Committee), Bob Myer (Inventor, Green Committee) and Ed Russick (Municipal Recyclable Coordinator) giving their views on Earth Day and being “Green”.
A poster contest of trees was held for Denville Elementary School age children. The posters lined the walls at the event. And a week ago a winner of the contest was picked by a jury of the Green Committee. All entries to this contest are winners, though.

Presently you can see a version of the Earth Day and Arbor Day on the Denville TV Youtube channel;
Also, presently, an extended version of this event is airing on the Denville TV Cablevision Program Wednesday from 7:00 to 7:30 PM on Public Access Channel 21. On that program you can see Denville Mayor Ted Hussa show just about all the posters entered in the contest.
