Children throughout Sweetwater County had a chance to learn, volunteer and have fun last weekend.

The city hosted its annual Earth Day Fair Saturday morning on Expedition Island and in the Pavilion. 

Aside from a variety of booths covering topics related to recycling and environmentally friendly activities, children also had a chance to make seed packets from newsprint and seed or play a ring toss game utilizing recycled bottles. Outside, children also got the chance to draw on the pavement using sidewalk chalk. However, the island didn't just offer the opportunity to learn about Earth Day. A group of fishermen attempted reel a fish or two from the river, fishing near the pedestrian walkway and at the eastern tip of the island. Randy Christensen and his son, Randy Jr. weren't able to catch anything from their spot at behind the Pavilion, but had a chance to enjoy warm, springtime weather.

In Rock Springs, children and students from Rock Springs High School were busy volunteering at the Memorial Hospital of Sweetwater County Auxiliary's annual Spring Fling Tea at Deer Trail Assisted Living. Members of the high school's National Honors Society were on hand to serve food and drink to the women attending the fundraiser.

Not all of the volunteers were high school students however; a trio of girls handing out brochures at the front door was helping their grandmothers, two of the auxiliary's board members.
