Description

Strike a Pose for Mother Earth on Mother’s Day! Raise Funds for Keep Rockland Beautiful… And Help Break a World Record   Mother’s Day this year will take on a twist when hundreds gather to celebrate Mother Earth and to support Keep Rockland Beautiful. Motivated by the desire to spread the word to a larger audience of all ages about the importance of ‘green’ initiatives, Keep Rockland Beautiful will host a unique event – the longest yoga tree pose chain – on Sunday, May 14th at 3:00pm at Rockland Lake State Park.   After everyone strikes a pose during the event – which will be captured on film by drone – participants can take a leisurely stroll around Rockland Lake. The event might even break a Guinness World Record which was set in India where 3,449 people gathered to form the largest yoga chain. Keep Rockland Beautiful is going after that record and is encouraging schools, sports teams, Girl Scout and Boy Scout troops, companies and other organizations, to join together to create a ‘branch’ to help support the event. “We believe this is a wonderful way to enjoy Mother’s Day outdoors with family and friends and be one with Mother Nature,” stated Wilmink.    Everyone is encouraged to take photos of themselves in a tree pose prior to the event and use the hashtag #MothersDay4MotherEarth to promote the event on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter leading up to the event to encourage others to participate.    The cost to participate is $25 for adults & teens; $10 for children ages 12 and under. Adults and teens will receive a set of gardening gloves to commemorate the event; kids a fun eco-inspired gift. To register: www.keeprocklandbeautiful.org or email info@keeprocklandbeautiful.org  or  (845) 708-9164. Orange & Rockland is a major sponsor for the event. Additional unique sponsorship opportunities are available; email susan@keeprocklandbeautiful.org for more information.    About Keep Rockland Beautiful Keep Rockland Beautiful leads efforts to clean, protect, and beautify Rockland’s environment by educating and empowering people to share in the care and stewardship of our communities. Our Earth B.E.A.T. program engages students K-8 in a day of interactive activities on local ecology, waste reduction, water and energy conservation.  Rockland P.L.U.S. involves high school students in planning for communities that provide a balance of Social Connections, Economic Opportunity and Environmental Sensitivity (S.E.E.).  Each year, our Great American Cleanup and Fall Waterways campaigns rally and support over 4,000 volunteers who remove tons of debris from our streets, parks, and waterways. Participation in the cleanup raises awareness and brings home the value of community service. Youth and artists who participate in KRB’s Artful Receptacle program turn ordinary trash cans into works of public art.
