Deborah Lonsdorf, president of the Narberth Civic Association advises locals, “Watch for our EarthDay poster around town for more details.  Stroll by the Narberth Civic Association’s window at Ricklin’s Hardware and you’ll see the beautiful globes created by Mrs. Grippi’s Kindergarten Classes at Merion Elementary School just for this event.  Come and celebrate Planet Earth, learn about the environment, wildlife, animals and sustainability while eating great food, mingling with friends and neighbors, and enjoying the old and the new at NarbEarth Day.”
This year, in addition to wonderful food by JPM Catering, including vegetarian options, we’ll have coffee and baked goods from NarBeans, and natural fruit pops from MomPops.”
