Finally, if really spreading your Irish cheer is about *going* green,  then we have a perfect event for you! On March 20th in Riverfront Park from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm there is an event to spread your green and help Lynchburg be more environmentally friendly:  KICK IT, DON'T FLICK IT

Cigarette butt litter is unsightly, costly and harms the environment. Come hear Jeremy Hardison, M.D., pulmonologist, and David Truitt, M.D., cardiologist, discuss the health effects of smoking. Thomas Shahady, professor at Lynchburg College, will speak about the environmental impact of discarded cigarette butts.  After their presentation, please join us as we pick up cigarette butts in downtown Lynchburg. Bags and gloves will be provided. Centra will recycle the butts with Terracycle, which will turn the discarded butts into park benches.
