City, town of Geneva team up for “Mission Zero” environmental awareness fair Saturday

The city of Geneva Green Committee and the town of Geneva’s Sustainability Committee are teaming up to present “Mission Z­­ero: Creating New Pathways for Living in Harmony with the Earth” on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Geneva Community Center, 160 Carter Road.

City Councilor Jan Regan highlights a few of the events.

The event will also include the town’s popular fix-it clinic, usually held at the Town Hall. Listen to my full Inside the FLX conversation with Jan Regan and Richard Cox below.
