The Bond County Trailblazers 4-H Club and the local Ag in the Classroom program partnered to hold a recycling event to celebrate Earth Day on April 22.

During the week of April 18-22 the teachers and administrators of the Mulberry Grove Elementary, Junior High, and High School were asked to collect paper for an Earth Day recycling service project. On Friday, April 22 (Earth Day) the Trailblazers 4-H club members collected the paper. Club leaders and the Ag In the Classroom coordinator transported the boxes of paper to the Bond County Recycling Center.
