Pennsauken To Mark Earth Day With Special Events
By Frank Sinatra, AAP Editor
On Saturday, April 22, Pennsauken will be hosting a variety of events to celebrate Earth Day, a national day to focus on the environment.
That Saturday, the Pennsauken Environmental Commission is sponsoring an even bigger document shredding event this year, with two trucks available to protect your identity and personal data in a responsible way. This year’s shredding event will be held from 9:00 a.m. – noon at Howard M. Phifer Middle School, 8201 Park Ave., Pennsauken.
Also at the Park Ave. Complex, the Shade Tree Commission will be sharing a limited number of trees to residents free of charge during the shredding event. Trees are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
In conjunction with the town’s 125th anniversary, families are welcome to help make 125 wildflower seed bombs, which will be used to plant flowers in the open field beside the Pennsauken Free Public Library, 5605 N. Crescent Blvd. The event begins at 10:30 a.m.; participants are asked to meet inside the Library for instructions and supplies. The official “detonation” will take place with Pennsauken Mayor Betsy McBride lobbing the first “bomb.”
