‘Green’ demonstrations, family-friendly activities and vendors increase at event
Gateway Technical College has expanded its Celebrate Earth Day activities and demonstrations for 2014 to include even more hands-on demonstrations, family-friendly activities and ways community members can be gentle on the environment at work and home.
The event will be held 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. April 26 at its Kenosha and Elkhorn campuses, featuring a number of earth-friendly activities, informational booths and children’s crafts.
“Both locations will offer an even greater array of opportunities to learn about the environment and have some fun,” says Gateway marketing director Jayne Herring. “Those attending the event will not only walk away with what it means to be more earth-friendly, but will gain actual knowledge and skills they can apply in their everyday lives.
“We have a strong, family-friendly component, so bring the children and have some fun while learning a lot about the environment and community organizations involved in environmental endeavors.”

Visitors at each campus will receive a reusable grocery bag, courtesy of event sponsor, Snap-on Incorporated, as well as a variety of other “green” focused items. The event is free and open to the public.
The Kenosha Campus is located at 3520-30th Ave., and the Elkhorn Campus is at 400 County Road H.
