Newcastle Earth Day kickoff is Thursday

April 13, 2015

NEW — 3 p.m. April 13, 2015

All those planning to exhibit, volunteer or attend Newcastle’s Earth Day celebration are invited to a special kick-off event two days before the big festival.

This month’s Newcastle Chamber of Commerce after-hours networking event is dedicated to a social kickoff of the April 18 Earth Day event. Earth Day enthusiasts are encouraged to mingle with those that will be working the event on Saturday.

“Meet others that you normally don’t have time to meet while tending your booth,” Newcastle Earth Day Chairwoman Grace Stiller said in an email. “We’ll reminisce of the first Earth Day celebrations – hippie style!”

Light refreshments and a no-host bar will be available at the April 16 event held at Tapatio Mexican Grill, 6920 Coal Creek Parkway S.E. It goes from 6 p.m. to 7:15 p.m.
