St. Michael's Milton celebrates Earth Day

bottle ladies On May 4, St. Michael's parishioners celebrated Earth Day by gathering together and educating young people on environmental protection and responsibility.  Marilyn Cheney, St. Michael's director of children's education, and parishioner Barb Phinney performed a skit for young parishioners about littering and the overuse of plastic. Phinney also serves as the Milton Garden Club's co-chair of conservation and is working hard to update the current 30-year-old "Bottle Bill" to include a five-cent deposit on all single-use water bottles and sports, juice and iced tea containers.  Following the performance, children received and decorated reusable canvas bags and were encouraged to use them when shopping.
