Exciting news! We’re partnering with our parent organization Transition Sooke, the Sooke Fair Fall Association and Creatively United for a Sooke Region Earth Day Celebration on Sunday, April 22 at the Sooke Community Hall. A team of locals under the direction of event coordinator Marlene Barry have started meeting regularly and are planning a truly diverse, fun and meaningful family event. Booths, exhibits, displays and activities are planned for the upstairs hall. Workshops will run in the lecture room. And our third Sooke Repair Cafe will proceed downstairs. We’re also hoping to organize another street clean-up (as we did on Earth Day 2017) to encourage folks to get outdoors on what ideally will be a perfect spring day and give our beautiful region a fresh shine and polish.
This year’s international Earth Day Network theme is “end plastic pollution,” and that fits perfectly with much of our work locally, of course. #BYOB. If you’d like to get involved, the Earth Day Sooke working group welcomes your ideas, inspiration and, especially, your valuable time and energy. Please contact Marlene by email at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more. Okay, that’s all for now and stay tuned for more. Yes, we’re pumped about this one too! 🙂
