There will be fun activities, demonstrations, giveaways and prizes all day long and live music at the Recycle Dance to end the day's festivities.

Free movies will be offered at the Buffalo Theater fro 11am until 3pm, and be sure to check out local businesses offering discounts to those bringing their own reusable shopping bag.
From 7 to 10pm at Beerfield Rendezvous and Social Club will be the Recycle Ball, with music by Gary Small and the Coyote Brothers.
