Happy Earth Day, friends! It is that time of year again to get outside and learn, act and impact!
Some you may already know this, but each year the state of Pennsylvania participates in the Great American Cleanup. From March 1st to May 31st, you are encouraged to clean up litter and trash along our roadsides, streams, beaches, parks, forests and neighborhoods.
Looking for a way to participate? We here at Joyce, Jackman & Bell Insurors have a few ideas:
- Host a recycling event for those hard to get rid of items like tires or appliances
- Grab the kids and beautify the neighborhood – plant bulbs and trees, or remove unsightly graffiti that devalues your community
- Check out the Great American Cleanup of PA website for events in your county
Here are 3 upcoming events in Luzerne County:
4/26/2014 – 9 am to 12 pm
