EarthFair '95 ... it's that time again!

by Kari Gray
n Earth Day millions of people look for something meaningful to do for the environment. The 25th Anniversary of Earth Day this year will generate an even greater participation with an expected half-billion people taking part worldwide. In San Diego, more than 70,000 people are expected to attend San Diego Earth Day's sixth annual EarthFair in Balboa Park on Sunday, April 23, 1995 from 10:00am - 5:00pm. EarthFair is the largest free environmental event in the West.
Now, you can be an important part of EarthFair '95 - and have fun doing it. The EarthFair is produced entirely by volunteers. More than 400 volunteers take part by managing the Earth Parade, assisting exhibitors and visitors, parking bicycles, helping manage the five stages of entertainment, recycling, manning the San Diego Earth Day booths ... all the jobs that go to make up the event. Without this grass-roots support, the EarthFair literally could not take place!
If you would like to be a part of the fun, meet some terrific people and take action for the future, come to our

January Volunteer Meeting
When: Tuesday, January 24, 6:30pm
Where: Joyce Beers Center

But wait ... there's more
