Joseph’s First Earth Day

Trash truck friend Joseph Cornejo had fun attending his first Earth Day!

As we’ve chronicled in Alive!, Joseph loves trash trucks, and has made a great friendship with Chermaine Fontenette, Sanitation Refuse Collection Truck Operator and Club Ambassador. (See the March and April issues of Alive! online to get the full story.)

“We went to Sanitation’s Earth Day,” reports Joseph’s mom, Sara Panameno. “It was so fun and good! We met up with Chermaine and Councilwoman Traci Park. We can’t wait for the May 6 open house!”
