Promote Fox Lake, the not-for-profit group working to enhance the Village sponsored the First Annual Earth Day Gathering at Millenium Park. After a welcome from organizer Danice Moore and Mayor Donny Schmit the crowd was treated to some great information on several environmental topics by speakers David Lace of the Citizens Climate Lobby, Sandy Miller of the Wild One’s Lake to Prairie Chapter and Meredith Schnelle, Long Time Environmental Activist.
Entertainment was provided by Mallory Lennon and Michael Lescher and a wonderful treat table was stocked with donations from the Whistle Stop Café, Diamond Deli, Fracheschi’s, Dog & Suds, Max Lescher and Danice Moore. The climax of the Gathering was a parade of 50 volunteers down the bike path. With seeds donated by Home Depot and signs donated by Sign Appeal, you’ll see the first section of our Wildflower Garden that will be expanded every year along until the entire bike path is bordered by flowers and native plants.
