      Residents invited to celebrate Earth Day

      St. Vincent de Paul in Republic is inviting everyone to celebrate Earth Day.

      The event begins Saturday morning at 11 a.m. at the Republic Michigamme School and runs until 3 p.m. Every half hour, there will be a presentation on how going green can help you save money. There will also be gardening tips and earth-friendly products you can buy.

      Organizers say their goal is to get more people involved and excited about Earth Day.

      "We have a fashion show that features all of the clothing here from St. Vincent de Paul in Republic," says Elizabeth Hangas, the co-manager of St. Vincent??s. "People will be surprised what type of clothing is available."

      A soup and sandwich luncheon will also be available at 1 p.m.
