Get Green ’09 – 3/14/2009

The annual Greening of the St. Mary’s River will occur this Saturday.  There is a full compliment of events scheduled.  Flooding should not be a problem for the actual event, however the procession from the Headwaters to the Historic Wells Street Bridge might need rerouting. Full details will be available Saturday morning. If you’d like, check this blog and if I hear anything I will post the updated details here. In the meantime, here’s Saturday’s list of events:
