Mother’s Day for Mother Earth, May 12

Seventh annual puppet show of enormous proportions

We’ll have a performance stage, hands-on workshop area and games, environmental information tables and refreshment area.

Why: Our goal is to bring awareness to environmental issues in our own area and to provide realistic opportunities for change and involvement, while exposing our audience to a broad range of ARTISTIC mediums; puppetry, theater, music, dance and sculpture. This interactive project will enable community members of all ages, races, and socio-economic strata to become a part of the art of puppet-making and performance while celebrating the environment, and reminding the community as a whole of our impact on the world in which we live.
