The annual blessing for the Valley Community for Recycling Solutions (VCRS), our program, staff, volunteers, users, facility, grounds, the landfill, and our community overall will take place this Saturday, December 16 at 12:00 noon in the VCRS recycling center classroom.
This is an annual blessing that has taken place for many years. The date of focus is actually December 21, the day we opened our facility on the Palmer-Wasilla Hwy in 2002. The borough also recognizes this day as MSB Recycles Day in honor of our anniversary. We chose this as our opening date, and now our anniversary, because of it being the shortest day of the year and the beginning of the days getting longer, more sunshine each day! It symbolizes endurance, strength, and hope for a bright future for all beings.
This is a community inclusive blessing with folks from many spiritual beliefs coming together to share their blessings in support of our program and the long-term good of all.
Please join us again this year or if this is your first time, welcome to this wonderful bringing together of our community at your community recycling center.
