You say Earth…

I say…?

 HOME?

On Earth Day go outside your home or from your window ring whatever ‘bells’ you have. You and your family at home can join our churches and others in an ALL TOWN BELL RINGING as one community in celebration of Earth Day.

Just ringing along is GREAT! 

IF you want to do MORE you can also let your actual voice be heard by making a short video and sharing it to be posted on the Town’s Earth Week page. Video yourself (or someone else) saying:

 “When you say ‘EARTH,’ I say…..”

[finish the sentence with 1 word, or a phrase, or a sentence.]

Then ask an adult to watch it and post it using Twitter #GreenwichEarthWeek
Timing:Wednesday - timing

BELL RINGING IS AT EXACTLY TWELVE NOON FOR ONE MINUTE

Post your “You say Earth, I say…..” video any time before or on Earth Day!
