Attention Whitewater KIDS
Please join me on Tuesday, April 22nd beginning at 5:30.
Come and learn a little about Earth Day + help take action and clean up our community.
My name is Morgan and I am a Cadette Girl Scout. I am planning an EARTH DAY Themed Community Clean-up Scavenger Hunt.
Please meet us at Starin Park at about 5:20 p.m (so we can start at 5:30).
Also, please bring 6-10+ Sentry/Wal-Mart plastic bags. It is important that we separate garbage and recycling and dispose of it properly. We will be breaking into smaller groups and walking around town for approximately 45 minutes, so parent participation is needed. Bring a wagon if you can. It helps a LOT! Our plan is to ask some local residents to place their garbage and recycling containers out for us to use. Sorting garbage and recycling as you pick it up is the best way to do it. If you have a wagon, place your full bags in there.
I am inviting kids from Whitewater, Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, our church youth group, plus anyone and everyone who would like to join us, so tell your friends.
If you’re a Scout: Wear your scout uniform. We’ll try to take a big group picture at the start. Would be fun to submit the picture to the newspaper.
Earth Day: It’s a great time to learn about our planet and how to take care of it. One hour of time will make a huge difference in our community.
Let’s hope for a nice day!!! We will meet rain or shine. Bring an umbrella 🙂
Thanks for your consideration.
Parents: After we have a little group meeting and group photo, please feel free to walk around town with your small group for as long as you’d like. If we have a great turnout, we may ask if there is anyone who would be willing to drive and start from another location. Example: drive and start from LINCS or Washington schools. Reason = there are only so many roads that branch off from Starin Park. We can cover the city of Whitewater better if we start from a few different locations. It would take too long to walk across town.
The duration of the scavenger hunt will be determined by the age of the children and their interest. Every little bit helps, but there is no set time that each group needs to walk around. You can leave when finished. Unfortunately, there is no recycling container at Starin Park. Please plan to sort out your garbage and recycling and dispose of it properly. FYI: there is a recycling container at LINCS and probably at Washington School, too.
