Carla Johnson, a representative from Republic Services, gave a lecture on the benefits of recycling as residents enjoyed a snack of mud cups (chocolate pudding with crumbled Oreo cookies filled with gummy worms). The guest of honor was Leap (Mercer Island mascot). A gardening caddy filled with tools was raffled off.
