Friday, April 20th starts the first event of Cabrini College’s exciting Earth Week. The series of events beginswith movie night, showing “Wall-E” while enjoying some refreshments in the Widener Lecture Hall at 7:30p.m. In the spirit of the movie, all recyclables that are used during the movie will be brought to the college’s Recycle Tree and hung up to remind the campus to do their part.
What better way to continue Earth Week than with a service trip. On Saturday, Cabrini will be going to a Norristown Schuylkill River Trail Clean-Up and beautification event. The Cabrini vans will be departing at 8:30 a.m outside the Public Safety building to transport people from campus to the destination of clean up. The vans are scheduled to return to camps by noon. This is a great experience for anyone who is looking to help out during Earth Week.
