On a sunny springtime Wednesday, over 100 members of the 179th Airlift Wing and 200th Red Horse Detachment 1 participated with local community members and area students to celebrate Earth Day on April 29, 2010.
The military volunteers worked at 12 projects sites throughout Richland County to include: Madison South Elementary, Woodland Elementary and Shelby YMCA. All the project locations included some form of outdoor beautifying, ranging from landscape improvements/planting to painting and mulching. At the schools, children helped to understand the importance of caring for the Earth's unique environment.
