EARTH DAY FAIR MAY 5, 2019
@ SKILLMAN PARK with Run with Rotary
Start your day with a little exercise for a good cause. The 12th annual RUN WITH ROTARY 5k Run and 1 mile Ramble events will be held before the Earth Day Fair (times TBA). In past years, the race has attracted 900 runners and walkers and is a sanctioned Grand Prix event by the USA Track and Field organization. Return for a great family tradition or start a new one of your own. Run as an individual or with the whole family.
Run With Rotary is the Montgomery/Rocky Hill Rotary Club’s main fundraising event. All proceeds benefit local and international charities. One of this year’s major goals is to purchase an upgraded mobile soup kitchen and disaster unit for Samaritan Homeless Interim Program.
The morning Run With Rotary event last year included music, supervised runners’ kid-care for ages 4-8, Penn Medicine Princeton Health activities, MHS Drum Corps, Dance Factory performance, massage tables, Zumba class, 50/50 Raffle, kid’s activities, and an Anh’s Taekwondo demo.

After the race, stay for the EARTH DAY FAIR, a family afternoon to celebrate our earth and learn more about the environment. The fair, sponsored by the Montgomery Environmental Commission and Sustainable Montgomery, will include free family activities such as environmental information booths, a science fair, Earth Day art show, kid’s activities, food, and a recycling drop-off.
There will be recycling collections for metals, electronics, medications, paper shredding, gently used clothing, business attire for Dress for Success, children’s books, bicycles, printer cartridges and more.

The Earth Day Fair is free and open to the public, everyone is welcome to drop items or park and stay. The activities will be held between Larocque Circle and the Village Elementary School starting at 12:00 pm. We are asking residents to please bring a donation for the Montgomery food pantry. Suggested items are found at link above. Sponsored by the Montgomery Environmental Commission and Sustainable Montgomery.
With the Montgomery Twp. School District’s support, there will be lots of opportunities for local children and teens to be involved, including the science fair, art show and a “Battle of the Bands” featuring Montgomery students.
