Earth Day clean upFor the second year in a row, Amy and Curt Smith of Jumpstart Preschool and Daycare chose to bring their students to NHF to celebrate Earth Day. The children ranged from 3 to 13 and arrived with wagons and rakes and shovels. With the help of Frank Berry, Lisa Drake and Ray Monreal they weeded and turned over flower beds, raked bushels of leaves, moved a forest of brush and a mountain of sand. As if that wasn’t enough –they brought lunch for themselves as well as our entire staff! Including special cookies they baked and decorated with green and blue frosting to look like the earth. They will be back in June to plant more flowers and mulch the flower beds. Many of our business neighbors stopped by to thank the kids and say "hello". What a special day at NHF. The yard looks amazing.
