In the spirit of Earth Month, the Woodstock High School Environmental Club is working hard to make the second year of Greenstock Woodstock a success. Greenstock, which is set for this Saturday, April 28, 2012 is an event featuring music, fun, entertainment and peace that will be held in the high school auditorium. It starts at 2:00 and will go through 6:00pm. Local Woodstock bands as well as aspiring solo artists have signed to showcase their talents. Among them are The Bumblebees, The Thunderbears and The Last Relapse.
With the help of Environmental Science teacher Christine Lauer, the Environmental Club supports the community by informing them to live more sustainably through recycling programs and other environmentally friendly events. The club hopes to educate the public on the importance of protecting the earth. With this in mind, last year the club started an annual solar powered event at Woodstock High School. With the help of ACE, a non-profit organization that provides free multimedia assemblies on climate science and solutions to high schools, Woodstock was able to rent a stage and make the concert successful. This year’s theme is “Do One Thing” (for the environment) at Greenstock.
Woodstock teachers and environmental club members are actively participating in this year’s Greenstock event by creating t-shirt designs and posters for the cause. This year students can make or purchase t-shirts, get a henna tattoo, buy rope bracelets, play different games, and recycle their ink cartridges or old cellphones.
Additionally, club members are gathering local sponsors that will have the option to advertise their business on the promotion advertisements and the back of Greenstock event t-shirts. Sponsors also have the opportunity to host a booth where they can sell and promote their own business. Part of their proceeds goes to next year’s Environmental Club.
