Urging All to Remember 50th Anniversary of Earth Day
by the SMCC Student Senate
The 50th Anniversary of Earth Day is right around the corner! Sadly, because of the current COVID-19 pandemic, the SMCC campus community will not be here to celebrate with the films or events we had hoped, or to remind everyone about how precious nature’s legacy is, that we as students enjoy and will one day inherit.
But it doesn’t mean we do not have it in our hearts.
There are so many ways to remember Earth Day :
~~ Clean your street !
~~ Plant your garden !
~~ Do a favor for your Neighbor !
~~ Plan for the Future !
~~ Reduce & Reuse things you find around the house !
In this way we can honor the spirit of the founders of Earth Day 50 years ago, and look forward to the times when students of today will be the policymakers and caretakers of this Earth tomorrow.
Our SMCC community sits right on Casco Bay — with its blue waters, its green islands, flashing lighthouses, and Atlantic seas — what better reminder of why Earth Day matters, now and always?
Happy Earth Day, Maine, from all of us at SMCC!
