(MURFREESBORO)  It is once again time to sign up to be part of Rutherford County’s 22nd Annual Earth Day Celebration! The event will be Saturday, April 22, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the historic public square in downtown Murfreesboro.

For the Earth Day Celebration to be a success, we need your participation. Attached is all the information you need to participate. Please read over the ‘Rules and Guidelines’ carefully, as some items have been updated from previous years. The application deadline is Friday, April 7; however, I would appreciate having the applications in as soon as possible to let the public know who will have a booth at the event in advance. This year’s theme is “Renew Rutherford Together.”

Our planet is an amazing place, but it needs our help to thrive! That’s why each year, on April 22, more than a billion people celebrate Earth Day to protect the planet from things like pollution and deforestation. By taking part in activities like picking up litter and planting trees, we’re making our world a happier, healthier place to live. This year, we are working together to “Renew Rutherford Together.”  We all need to work together to invest in the community that we love. It is up to each and every one of us to do our part, not just because we care about the natural world but because we live on it. We all need a healthy Earth to support our jobs, livelihoods, health & survival, and happiness. Our community depends on it!

Rutherford County’s Earth Day Celebration aims to educate and mobilize our community into action. This year, we ask that your booth reflect our theme of “Renew Rutherford Together.” Some examples of how the theme could be used are renewable energy, keeping our rivers and streams clean, recycling, planting pollinating plants to support bees and butterflies, or supporting the use of sustainable products.
