Earth Day organizer sought


AWARE is looking for an event co-ordinator to organize Earth Day celebrations this year.

Earth Day is April 22, which is the last day of the Telus World Ski and Snowboard Festival in Whistler. Resort Communications Group, which runs the festival, is interested in integrating Earth Day celebrations into the WSSF, if AWARE helps with the organization.

In past years, AWARE has celebrated Earth Day in various forms, from a huge two day event at Myrtle Philip including bands, food, a silent auction and information booths, to simply organizing information tables in Village Square. This year's event will likely be more on the modest side - if an organizer can be found.

Anyone interested should contact Mitch Rhodes at 938-3306, or e-mail:
