"Go Green Elmhurst" events preparation

Posted by Young Governors on August 2, 2013 at 11:35 PM

As it happens, Young Governors are in the process of rigorous planning for the two "Go Green Elmhurst" events, which will happen in Elmhurst and Broadway Parks in August.


So, what are these events about?


With our main goal of educating people and spreading the 3R (Reduce, reuse, recycle) words, Young Governors will organize different activities related to environment . Currently, we are still revising those activities to make sure the best will happen; yet, surely there will be:


1) A Scavenger Hunt: participants will be competing to see which team can collect more recyclables like bottles or cans around the parks. So….bring your kids, your younger sisters, brothers! They will have fun joining our “green” adventure, and what could be more awesome that seeing how your kids learn to be aware of protecting the environment through only a small game?


2) Making eco-friendly craft projects: we will teach you on how to make bags out of T-shirts and newspaper or how to make use of thrown-away bottles. It will be fun, we promise!



If you know how to make them already or even have more ideas about recycling, please don’t hesitate to tell us and come to our events. We really need more people, more advice and feedback to make this events as successful as possible.


3) Face painting:


Yes! If you like it, we will paint your face with nice designs ( which are related to environment, of course). Come! Kids love it, and teenagers like us love it too!


We absolutely plan more than just 3 activities, yet more information will be updated later because we are still revising other activities.



Thank you for reading. We really appreciate it.
