Whitefish Bay is already a pretty clean place, but it became a little cleaner – and greener– after the Whitefish Bay Civic Foundation's Green Day in the Bay event Saturday morning.
The event at focused on creating a more healthy, environmentally-conscious community, with groups volunteering to pick up trash, an informational eco-fair, a presentation , a book donation drive sponsored by the Friends of the Whitefish Bay Library and a Bicycle Federation of Wisconsin donation drive that collected 78 old bicycles to be repaired and distributed to Milwaukee Public School students through the Safe Routes to School program.
