All invited to celebration

To the Editor: Earth Day is a holiday for all! Do you know anyone who doesn’t need the oxygen produced by trees, or nutritious food from rich soil and sunshine, or pure water from the amazing cycle of evaporation and condensation?

Why have we forgotten people’s common need for love, acceptance, friends and recognition, while allowing the fact of diversity among people to separate us, causing     racism, bullying and violence against others in the human family? 

The eighth annual Earth Day Celebration will be “human family friendly” in the largest meaning of that phrase! All are welcome on Saturday, April 20, in downtown Grand Haven. There will be no boundaries of age, income, background, culture, creed, geography or politics. 

After the Grand River Cleanup at 9 a.m. at Harbor Island, we will celebrate the gifts of Earth to all people with a Green March meeting at noon at the Franklin Avenue lot across from the County Courthouse, an Earth Day Fair from 1-4 p.m. in the Community Center, and Earth Rock (weather permitting) in Central Park beginning at 4 p.m.

The Lakeshore Earth Day Committee and our sponsors — Bata Plastics, Cardno/JF New, C.O.R.E., Lakeshore Environmental, Herman Miller and many supporters — invite everyone to imagine with others in our human family a world where planet, profit and people are balanced, learn how you can help create this balance, and for the rest of your life act on what you have learned!

— Connie Widdis, Lakeshore Earth Day Committee
