A Great Day for America Recycles Day

It was a great day yesterday and a lot got accomplished!

I am now officially a member of Keep Brevard Beautiful Central Chapter. At the meeting I talked about the latest on our America Recycles Day event and put out a request for brown paper bags (to use in our pavilion), a Christmas tree (for our participation in the Festival of Trees at the King Center), and volunteers.

We do need volunteers! So after meeting with the great folks from KBB Central Chapter, I went to BCC Cocoa for the Rotaract Club meeting to explain the event and see if they would be interested in helping out. They were all for it and Troy is chairing for us! With his help I think we will get all the volunteers we need and maybe more.

Besides volunteers, we are still looking for an artist to participate. Barb from KBB sent out a message to the other KBBCC members. Nicki, who is helping me organize the event, contacted the current Art teacher at Manatee Elementary. We should be able to find someone interested... Fingers crossed!

Nicki has also been contacting media (newspaper and radio) to get some coverage for the event. We have had some positive feedback and will probably get some support in that area.

Now what we need is attendees! Moving on with still a lot of work to do and plenty to organize!

Recycle Brevard!
