Weather dampened attendance but not enthusiasm at the 2003 Earth Day held at the Lake House Saturday. Many of the 55 exhibitors said they were impressed with the level of interest in eco-subjects in Evergreen. Rain mixed with snow fell outside, as people loaded up on wildlife pamphlets, energy-saving tips, and packets of wildflowers. Petitions were signed and pizza was eaten.
"You can count on us for that much-needed moisture," said Mary Dickhoff, an Earth Day and Beyond organizer.
Organizers hope for nice weather but Earth Day traditionally has been wet.
