In kicking-off their traditional Open Space Programming with a month full of EARTH DAY activities, the Central Rhode Island Junior Chamber of Commerce ('JAYCEES') Alumni Club, are pleased to announce their collaborative efforts with numerous groups across the Kent County area.

In announcing their EARTH DAY MONTH schedule, the JCS will be holding a series of events starting on Saturday, April 14th (rain date 4/21/18), where their Kent County Junior Chamber in concert with multi-groups as an EARTH DAY Committee (currently there is no official statewide organization), are sponsoring community wide clean ups and beautification projects.

The April 14th EARTH DAY gathering will meet at the American Legion Post 2 in W. Warwick @ 8:30Am and will be assigned areas for clean-up along the West Bay Bikepath (Greenway), Arctic Business District and the Pawtuxet River Walkway and reassemble back at the Post 2 for a bar-b-que with the Friends of the Greenway, Police Explorers, Scout Troops & Cub Scouts, Arctic Village Association Members, Lions Club and JCS Volunteers.

Then, on Saturday, April 21 the JCS & Volunteers will celebrate ARBOR Day from 11:Am - 1:Pm at their award-winning Arboretum on the perimeter of Riverpoint COMMUNITY Park in W. Warwick, demonstrating tree ecology techniques and plant care practices.

Later in the week, the JAYCEES will assist other volunteers in the development of a community garden outside the historic Riverpoint Mills Village along the West Bay Bikepath.

The JCS also encourage the public to join them on Saturday, May 05th (rain date: UNDER PAVILLION) from 10:Am - 1:Pm for their 21st annual ECOLOGY DAYS Festival, where a Peace Prayer Ceremony is conducted with religious leaders and veterans and 100 flowers are planted in memory of the Station Fire Victims.

he JCS are also planning a classic Spring leisure coffee an' before the cultivation of planting begins. Any groups, volunteers or sponsors are more than welcome to be an integral part of the planning process.
