Recycling is Paying for Our Vacation


Published May 13, 2008 at 5:04 p.m.

So for the past year, seven of us — five adults and two kids — have been saving bottles and returning them for money to pay for our trip to Florida. We are heading to sunny Florida June 22-29.

Between all of us saving bottles we were able to buy seven round trip tickets to Orlando. We paid for a week at the Hilton, along with a week of a rental car. And just yesterday, we all bought our four park-flex passes.

We're going to hit up Universal Studios, Sea World, Islands of Adventure and Wet N' Wild. We can go to the parks as many times as we want for two weeks. We're only there for a week, so hopefully we'll be able to pass these off to some folks as they are arriving so they can use them for a week.

And just to make sure we have enough spending money we are having a yard sale this coming weekend. Come support our creative fundraising efforts! Here are the details:

Friday 5/16 - Noon - 4 p.m.
Saturday 5/17 - 9 a.m. - 4 p.m.
Sunday 5/18 - 9 a.m. - 4 p.m.

42 Gauthier Drive
Swanton, VT

Plenty of refreshments and treats will be available.
