Eco Fest Coming to Preston on September 28th

Eco Fest debuts on Saturday, September 28, 10am-2pm, at the Preston Town Park, 105 Back Landing Road, Preston. The idea for Eco Fest originated with a couple members of Bethesda United Methodist Church in Preston. Concerned about the trash on the side of the roads and wanting to help improve their community, they decided to launch an effort to raise awareness of what each person can do to help make the world a better (and cleaner) place. Event co-chair Suzy Staehlin explains, “There are so many easy little things each and every one of us can do to make the world a better place. Our motto is ‘I refuse to do nothing.’ Just because we can’t do everything doesn’t mean we shouldn’t do something. Eco Fest is all about easy and practical steps we can each take to protect and improve the world around us.”
