Grove Lower Elementary School has a new fundraiser in honor of Earth Day. Science Teacher Terry Cash started teaching recycling over three years ago.

Mrs. Cash said that Christy Wright, PTO President, presented her with the idea of selling recycle bags this year. The bags are $3 each and proceeds go back to the Lower Elementary.

The second year she received a GEFEE grant and started a recycling program that grew large and quick. Now called the Ridgy Recycle, they accept cardboard, paper, newspaper, plastic bags and bottles and aluminum. The Delaware County Friendship Center collects the recycling for them.
