Editor, The Advisory Board of Keep Liberty County Beautiful would like to extend a sincere thanks to all of those who participated in Earth Day 2008 -- Go Green For Future Generations.
The event, planned to include the city of Hinesville, the Hinesville Downtown Development Authority and Georgia Cities Week, was a great success bringing more than 300 people to downtown Bradwell Park on April 22.
With over 40 exhibits, the advisory board of Keep Liberty County Beautiful and its volunteers, created an atmosphere of family fun and environmental awareness. Exhibitors included; Georgia Power Company, Coastal Electric Cooperative, Hampton Island, Tree of Life Farms, Georgia Department of Natural Resources, Fort Stewart/Hunter Clean and Beautiful, Department of Wildlife, Liberty County Extension Services, Liberty County Environmental Health, Georgia Riverkeepers, Georgia Conservancy and Liberty County Solid Waste. Also billing the day to include public works, the city of Hinesville had on-site numerous vehicles for children to explore to include; a fire truck, a vacuum truck, a police car, a garbage truck and many others.
There were so many things for children and families to do from: face painting and temporary tattoos; to fish print shirts and sidewalk chalk art; to holding live snakes and bunnies. There were environment games and interactive enviroscapes, as well as a recycling game and tons of information about the environment and what we can each do to reduce our carbon footprint.
The board would like to offer a special thanks to the following groups who helped sponsor this event either with their money, time or efforts: McDonalds, Georgia Power, the Liberty County Health Department, the Liberty County School System, the Hinesville Downtown Development Authority, Prevent Child Abuse Liberty and the United Way.
