Rita Lacey’s Give and Take day a HUGE success!

The 5th annual Monroe County Give and Take day went off without a hitch thanks to the incredible dedication of Rita Lacey. Rita has been organizing this event to help broadcast awareness of the idea of Reuse, Reduce and Recycle. Each year hundreds of people gather their gently used items and bring them to their local park where Rita and many volunteers sort items into various categories. As the day progresses and excitement builds, the crowd gathers just outsude a huge field until the ribbon is cut. The gently used items are then passed on to others who could reuse them. Miss Lacey has her own website , which can be found at which contains items for sale that help recycle plastics and rubbers into functional and beautiful landscaping items. Rita is a member of the World Martial Arts Association and practices with the World Martial Arts Academy of Pennsylvania located on Pilgrim Way in Brodheadsville, PA.
