By now most of you have probably already noticed that we haven’t mentioned anything about Brewfest 2016. Due to new enforcement regulations etc we are unable to host the event until we can come up with new ideas and sponsors that can help us.
Until then, please support our organization in other ways by volunteering or by making a donation on our website.
You can read more information about the new regulations here: https://beerofsc.com/2016/06/28/your-special-event-is-probably-illegal-now/
For Immediate Release
Keep Florence Beautiful (KFB) will host a two-part environmental education workshop for Florence County educators.
On Saturday, October 22, Keep Florence Beautiful will host a free, two-part environmental education workshop for Florence County K-12 educators. Participating teachers will receive training in DHEC’s “Action for a Cleaner Tomorrow” curriculum and in the Green Steps Program for Environmental Education. They will also receive a copy of the “Action” curriculum, recertification credit, lunch, a t-shirt, and classroom supplies.
The “Action” curriculum is a national award-winning kindergarten through 12th grade, activity-based, interdisciplinary curriculum supplement that is aligned with the newest South Carolina Standards. Green Steps is an environmental education initiative that encourages individual schools to take annual steps toward becoming more environmentally responsible by focusing on students’ “learning, doing, and teaching others.” Though Green Steps has been in existence since 2003, Sneed Middle School is the only Florence County school that currently participates.
Lisa Perry, 7th Grade Science teacher, is the Sneed Green Steps Team leader and has used the “Action” curriculum in her classroom for five years. “When I first learned about Green Steps, I was surprised at the number of projects I already involved my students in that fit into the Green Steps model of ‘learn, do, teach.’ I appreciate that ‘Action’ is hands-on, engaging, and allows students to see that sustainable practices can be economically, aesthetically, and environmentally rewarding both to them and the wider community.”
Participation is limited to 40 educators, and interested parties should visit the following link to register: http://tinyurl.com/eeregistration2016.
Need to dispose of old electronics or confidential documents? KFB has you covered! Join us on Saturday, April 30 from 10:00 AM – Noon for FREE electronics recycling and paper shredding/recycling. Thanks to our partners Best Buy and Palmetto Secure Document Destruction.
In its 16th year as an affiliate of Keep America Beautiful, the Keep Florence Beautiful Board of Directors, along with individuals, churches, nonprofit organizations, political organizations, businesses and schools, join hands in cleaning up Florence and ridding streets and neighborhoods of debris and trash.
The Great American Cleanup (GAC) will be held Saturday, April 30, 2016. Volunteers will be cleaning their designated areas of the community then meeting at Timrod Park in Florence where teams turn in their clean up reports and enjoy a free lunch provided by Keep Florence Beautiful and its sponsors.
In addition to the GAC, Keep Florence Beautiful has teamed up with Florence County Disabilities and Special Needs to collect paper at Timrod Park, to be recycled. The paper will be collected onsite then shredded at the AAA certified Palmetto Secure Document Destruction Facility. Best Buy will also be on hand to offer e-cycle. Funds and materials from the collection will be used to support beautification projects in the Florence Area.
