Beautiful Day for the Environment

September 15, 2012

To the Editor:
Saturday, September 8th was a beautiful day for the environment.  People from Lake Lotawana, Lee’s Summit, Blue Springs, Grain Valley, Lone Jack, Independence, and Jackson County came together to recycle their unwanted TVs, computers, other electronics, and bicycles.  Lake Lotawana Community United Methodist Church hosted the event as part of a United Methodist state-wide day of service to our communities.  Many pounds of electronics were collected from 84 cars and are being 100% recycled in the Midwestern states by Surplus Exchange, an eStewards certified local non-profit company.  In addition, 75 bicycles were collected to be refurbished by RevolveKC, a local non-profit striving to provide bicycles to everyone for a healthy lifestyle.  As part of this day of service, church members also cleaned up and beautified the grounds of Mason Elementary School and collected food for Grand Avenue Temple United Methodist Church in Kansas City. Thank you for helping us preserve our planet’s natural resources.

Thank you,
Alice Fuerst
Blue Springs
