OKAY you guys, this is it!
Today over 100 farmers, green companies, environmental non-profits, Cornell Cooperative Extension Dutchess County employees and volunteers made their way to the Dutchess County Fairgrounds to set up their booths, activities, games, food demos, talks, and more.
Advanced Recovery, Inc. began its 3-day e-waste take-back program out in the main parking lot (today was for businesses only; tomorrow and Sunday are for YOU!).
Our incredible ground crew, plus our great decorators, our amazing front and back office staffs, our (unbelievably supportive [of me]) General Manager, Bob Grems and our he-can't-possibly-be-so-many-places-at-once-but-he's-always-right-there-when-you-need-him-to-solve-your-problem Andy Imperati made it all seem seamless.
And tomorrow, before all of you get to the venue, they, and the other folks who are coming and setting up just for you will be on site at the shriek of dawn (well okay, maybe 8 a.m., not so shriek-y, but early on a Saturday after an incredibly full week) putting the finishing touches on our Celebration preparations.
It's going to be a beautiful day, and it's going to be a beautiful Earth Day Celebration. I can tell you that this thing's going to be GREAT fun and a wonderful thing to do on a lovely Saturday. Even on a maybe-not-so-lovely Sunday (if the weather folks are right, and since they so often are SO WRONG, I choose not to focus on it. Hey it's all indoors, this Celebration, anyway).
SO, come one, come all and have a ball. We built this Earth Day Celebratio for y'all.
