The Northeast Resource Recovery Association (NRRA), New Hampshire the Beautiful and NRRA’s School Recycling CLUB presented a Special Recognition award to the Allenstown Elementary Drama Club at the 9th Annual School Recycling Conference on May 22 at the Manchester Downtown Hotel in Manchester, N.H.
The Allenstown Drama Club was recognized for its spirited performance of The Green Machine, by Michael and Jill Gallina, adapted by Allenstown Teacher Kimberlie Berrigan. The children sang and danced their way from a polluted park, through a Green Machine transformation, to a litter-free park and a Party for the Planet song. In keeping with the Conference Recycling Rules theme, the students received gold crowns, green bracelets and hearty applause.
“The future of recycling in Allenstown looks secure with these enthusiastic future recyclers. I especially liked the Recycle Michael song,” said Michael Durfor, NRRA executive director, in a statement.
