St. Vincent Academy hosted its Ecology Club’s Ecology Earth Day Fair Tuesday, May 16, on its great lawn. The event included reinforcement of recycling norms, an informational trifold including the names of recycling centers in Essex County and games, including sort the pile (which recycling item goes where), a ring toss and a corn hole throw. Prizes were awarded and included the right to drench a teacher with a bowl of cold water. The event also served as a fundraiser, the proceeds from which will be used to sustain the school’s sustainable agricultural project, which promotes healthy living and healthy nutrition through urban farming using raised garden beds.
