Centenary University and the Hackettstown Community are organizing the 11th Annual free, open to the public Earth Day Celebration! This is our annual outreach to the local community to raise awareness of Earth Day and sustainable living. Over a 150 volunteers will engage young and adults alike with fun games, arts, and crafts. The kids’ favorite bounce house will be here again! Our student DJ will entertain us all day with WNTI music. We have a recycled materials fashion display and show, dance performances, Lisa Baldwin’s Music&Motion program for the youngsters, and much more. The ABILITIES of NWNJ will be recycling your unwanted electronics.
Our itinerary is an ever-changing work-in-progress. Stay tuned.
