On Oct. 26 Keep Irving Beautiful (KIB) participated in the Irving Family YMCA’s annual Fall Festival. KIB provided “green event” educational opportunities for attendees with a Q&A conservation, recycling and environmental prize wheel. Attendees spun the wheel and answered questions for prizes, which were donated by the Friends of the Irving Public Library. Additionally, attendees learned about clean public spaces and received litter bags for their vehicles.
“The Irving Family YMCA is such a valuable resource for the community,” said KIB Board Member Rachel Moon. “We appreciate that they invite us to participate in this event each year. It’s a great opportunity to get the KIB message out to residents of all ages.”
