WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Spread out on blankets, flying kites in the meadow or walking the trails at Renfrew Park, hundreds of people celebrated Earth Day on Sunday simply by enjoying their natural surroundings.
For the seventh year, organizers at Renfrew Institute for Cultural and Environmental Studies invited the public to renew their appreciation for the planet through activities, entertainment, educational exhibits, and programs.
"We hold this for two reasons: First, to celebrate what we have here, and second, to renew our commitment to preserve and protect the natural environment around us," said Melodie Anderson-Smith, director of Renfrew Institute.
