Lord Fairfax Community College (LFCC) is hosting a “Going Green Day” at the Fauquier Campus on Saturday, April 21 from noon to 3 p.m.  The event will serve to educate LFCC students and community residents on ways to utilize green ideas.  The family-friendly event and activities include free pizza, a “green” information fair, moon bounce, face painting, seed planting, kites, paper shredding, give-aways of recyclable bags and reusable water bottles, a bulb-crusher demonstration, and musical performances.

 

This even is an outreach of a grant received from the Dominion Power Foundation to enable the LFCC Fauquier Campus to research and implement new green initiatives.  The $20,000 grant has enabled the campus to sponsor a student-led environmental sustainability committee responsible for researching and implementing green practices.  The “Going Green Day” is being sponsored by the Student Activities Office and the LFCC Education Foundation.
