    I really enjoyed my community Earth event, Bexley Green Fair. I walked a mile there, got to talk with many different companies and people about sustainability and learned so much. Then I walk the mile home. I am thankful!

    I am gathering up unwanted stuff around our home to donate to the Bexley Senior Center’s Garage Sale on May 14. Whatever money they make will go to fund activities for the senior center. Win-Win! I get rid of stuff, others get to buy low cost stuff and the money supports those my community.

    I live in the Ohio Watershed. The Ohio River Length is 981 miles. Billions of people worldwide still live without safely managed drinking-water, sanitation and hygiene services, which are critical for protecting human health and containing the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
