Earth Day will be cel­e­brated again this year in the Boy­er­town Com­mu­nity Park on Satur­day, April 28, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Be sure to kick off spring with a day in the park cel­e­brat­ing na­ture, the en­vi­ron­ment and healthy liv­ing. There will be hand­son ac­tiv­i­ties, an­i­mals and lots of food.

Our an­nual shred event, spon­sored by Ger­hart, Hart­man & Rit­ner, will be avail­able in front of the pool from 10 a.m. to noon. Bring your items to be shred­ded safely and se­curely. A $10 do­na­tion for two gro­cery size bags in rec­om­mended.

At 1 p.m., Boy­er­town’s finest – our bor­ough po­lice will be in the park to do a bi­cy­cle rodeo and bike safety work­shop. Bring your bike and test your skills. The fire de­part­ment and am­bu­lance will also be on site through­out the day and will of­fer CPR in­for­ma­tion.

Have you met our park bear – Parker? He stands at the en­trance to the park to greet all vis­i­tors. We also are very proud of our other new ad­di­tions – the Wa­ter Foun­tain for dogs and the new Pickle Ball Court.
