Family Green Night to be held on Friday

Community groups will sponsor "Family Green Night" on Oct. 19 where Gold Award applicants Amelia Steeger will debut her 1,000 paper crane sculpture and Zoey Anszperger will talk about making Medfield a plastic-bag-free town.

The following is taken from an announcement submitted by the Medfield Girl Scouts.

To honor Girl Scouts USA “Forever Green” 100th Anniversary and promote more green living in the community, Medfield Girl Scouts Troop 74900, along with New ‘N Towne and Medfield Green, is sponsoring a “Family Green Night,” Friday, October 19th from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the United Church of Christ, 496 Main Street in Medfield.

Featured at this event will be two of Medfield’s Ambassador Girl Scouts – Amelia Steeger and Zoey Anszperger – and their Gold Award Projects.

Steeger will wrap up her Gold Award project, Cranes for Change, by debuting her 1,000 Paper Crane Sculpture and offering several “green” projects and activities for kids who come to the event.

Anszperger will launch her Gold Award project, an initiative to encourage Medfield residents to cut back on using plastic bags. During the event, she will help attendees turn old t-shirts into reusable bags and educate them on how to help Medfield become a “plastic bag-free” town.

At Family Green Night, kids and adults can also sample healthy food choices provided by Whole Foods and learn about healthy eating from local nutritionists, Jill Driscoll and Rose Colleran.

There will also be demonstrations and booth displays for non-toxic body care and home care products. Kerri Pomfret, a representative from Ava Anderson will share details about chemicals in personal care products and green cleaning coach, Dana Ravech will demonstrate the art of making your own green cleaners.

In addition, Maria Piedra, owner of The Butterfly Tree Shop will discuss earth-friendly trade practices and display many great fashions and gifts.
