this community the perfect place
to celebrate our 100-year history of
“making the world a better place.”

Saturday, April 28, 2012 in Greensburg

educational activities provided by
community partners like The Bug Lady
and the Kansas Department of Wildlife
and Parks and Tourism, as well as Girl

or getting their face painted at the
Go Green Block Party. Ceremonies
