‘Mother Earth’ celebration coming up

> SOUTHERN INDIANA —

Trash Force Inc. announced its 2013 Mother Earth Celebration in honor of Earth Day. The event, which will be held Mother’s Day weekend — from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. May 11 — demonstrates support for environmental awareness and is open to the public at no cost.  

“We are excited to bring this celebration to the New Albany Riverfront,” said Trash Force President Warren Nash in a press release. “This event offers individuals an opportunity to learn more about caring for the environment while enjoying free activities, music and other entertainment.”

The event will feature a live jazz music performance by the Jamey Aebersold Quartet from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., as well as a performance by funologist Amazon Jungle John and his Silly Safaris Show. The show features a variety of animals — mammals, reptiles, birds, amphibians and bugs — and is geared to teaching children simple wonders about nature and the world around us.

In addition to the scheduled performances, organizers have also arranged for an array of vendors and other exhibitors, including child fingerprinting by the New Albany Police Department; tours of the QRS Recycling Center at 10th & Water streets; a water safety display by the U.S. Coast Guard; a fire safety display by the New Albany Fire Department; and craft beer from the New Albanian Brewing Co. 

Other participants include Magician Delbert the Wizard; the Floyd County Solid Waste District; the New Albany Tree Board; St. Paul Episcopal Church; the Dandy Lion; and New Life International with water purifiers. 

Carriage rides, face-painting, food and other informational booths will also be on site.  

“Organizations interested in exhibiting as part of the event are still welcome,” Nash said. Those interested in exhibiting should contact Mary Ann Sodrel by email at trashforce@insightbb.com or by phone at 812-945-0825. There is no fee for exhibiting at the event.
