The Texoma Earth Day Festival is a fixture in our area and Red River Unitarian Universalists is the reason Earth Day is in Texoma. It history is impressive and while we might say this year’s is the 14 consecutive festival, we shifted during Covid from a formal festival to special recycle days where people brought thousands of pounds of items for recycling.
The Texoma Earth Day Festival is run entirely by volunteers. We would love to have you decide to have fun with us, either before the festival or the day of. Volunteers who register early will receive a free volunteer t-shirt. Volunteers set up the event the day before and take things down afterwards. Volunteers staff booths – and the church booth NEEDS SEVERAL VOLUNTEERS who would enjoy spending an hour or more explaining who we are as a faith community.
Intrigued? Here is where you will find out about being a volunteer. (Right now, the link to the details is from two years ago, as the most current info is available it will be posted, but the general info is close enough to be helpful now.)
The Texoma Earth Day Festival reflects Unitarian Universalist values as reflected in our Principles “”Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.” For many UUs that web focuses on the environment, the planet, and our need to sustain and protect it.
