We Care Arts is creating gnomes for a beautiful installation inside the much loved universally accessible community, Owen’s Place. You can sponsor a gnome and your name, or your family name, will be displayed. Sign up now because it wraps up at the end of the month.

Five Rivers MetroParks’ annual Earth Day celebration Adopt-A-Park will return this year — but with a different look. You are invited to participate and help MetroParks protect the region’s natural heritage by registering for and picking up free Adopt-A-Park service kits.
