GreEnid returns this year with several activities for the whole family to enjoy. Children can make bird feeders, while everyone can participate in potato races and grab some recyclable shopping bags.

A new event called Reusapalooza will be incorporated into GreEnid. The public is asked to drop off items that are not broken and that the owners no longer want. Representatives of Lola’s Boutique, Broadway Xchange and Park Avenue Thrift will take the items and make them usable again. Items will be chosen at 8:30 and finished products will be judged at 10:30.
