John Edmiston will be the speaker for the Indian Rock Village Auxiliary meeting on Thursday, January 17, 2013.
John will be speaking on recycling here in Fairfield Bay. John is the chairman of the Fairfield Bay Recycling Board and coordinates the Hippe Recycling Center volunteers. John has been involved in recycling since 1986. Before it was called recycling, it was a Lion’s Club fund raiser for the youth by collecting paper and cans in a trailer located in Mead Park.
The purpose of the recycling board is to develop and administer an effective and practical recycling program for the sub station of Van Buren County including public education on recycling and the systematic collection, sorting, composting, packaging and returning of waste materials to commerce for reuse in present and reprocessed form. John plans to show a video about E-Waste and talk about the new education center. We will be meeting in the Gallery at Indian Rock Village at 10 a.m. We welcome visitors.
