KARE participates in local Earth Day celebration.
The City of Parlier’s Earth Day celebration on March 30th attracted about 2000 attendees. Events included a tree planting, Easter egg hunt, family walk, folk dancing, zumba dancing, free raffles for prizes, games for youth, and face painting. Representatives from many local service organizations had booths that provided families with free items ranging from food to dental screening. KARE’s booth provided 1000 strawberry crowns and 2500 leaf lettuce transplants to the public. Youth from the local Leo club helped with handing out the plants and discussing the benefits of eating fruits and vegetables.
