What a wonderful day we had for Westland to celebrate Earth Day 2014
Along with a number of residents and Mission: Green members, Mayor William R, Wild held its 2014 Earth Day Celebration Event on Earth Day, Tuesday, April 22, 2014 at the Norwayne Community Garden located at the northwest corner of Newaygo and Dorsey in the heart of our Historic Norwayne Community. The event was sponsored by National Faith Homebuyers who be providing soil, tools and refreshments so that volunteers that include the Hegira Counseling Youth Spring Break group, the Westland Youth Assistance Program and Sts. Simon and Jude Youth Group could clean up winter debris, prepare beds by cleaning them and spreading fresh soil and straw, install rain barrels and plant perennials.
At this wonderful event, Mayor Wild highlighted the youth of our great All-American City and the contributions they make to Westland and the Historic Norwayne Community by presenting the coveted Mission:Green Eco-Award to National Faith Homebuyers, the Hegira Counseling Youth Spring Break Group, and Sts. Simon and Jude Youth Group for their work and dedication toward making Westland a greener place to live, work and play.
A fourth Mission:Green Eco-friendly Award was presented to North Brothers Ford who recently undertook a lighting retrofit project on their site.
