How exciting is springtime? After a long, cold winter filled with gray skies and snow-covered ground, the sun appears and hints of color begin to splash across lawns and trees in the Cumberland Valley. Spring awakens us to nature again, reconnects us to the earth and invites us to bask in the warm and beautiful glow of our sun.
And that’s why spring is such a perfect time to honor life on this incredible planet by celebrating Earth Day. Welcome to our annual Green Issue, chock-full with information about how you can make a difference for the planet we all call home.
I am proud to say that every day is Earth Day at West Shore Connect, which is why we print every issue with a printer who uses wind power, earth-friendly inks and 100% recycled paper.
And don’t forget . . . save the date! The Mechanicsburg Earth Day Festival will take place in downtown Mechanicsburg on April 18 from 9:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. Please stop by and visit us!
If you can’t say hello in person, we would still like to hear from you. So drop us a line (or an email) and tell us what you have liked about West Shore Connect so far, and what you’d like to read about in the future.
Thanks for reading!
