Spring Fun with the Winnebago FACT Group

This spring the Winnebago FACT group has been taking their FACTivims to outside and using their outdoor voices. From sprucing up the Sundial in downtown Oshkosh to chalking sidewalks with the FACT Movement message outside Maplewood Middle School in Menasha the group has been loving the warmer weather and sunshine.

Cigarette butts are the number one littered item on U.S. roadways and on beaches/waterways worldwide and our group wanted to make a dent in that litter. The FACT Crew put on gloves and got to work. In just thirty minutes they had collected BAGS of cigarette butts and helped get the Sundial park in downtown Oshkosh ready for spring. Take a look at all those happy helpers in the below picture.

The Winnebago FACT group also chalked up the sidewalks in Menasha at Maplewood Middle School. They used sidewalk chalk to spread the truth about tobacco while bringing attention to the dangers of using tobacco. The FACT Crew had a blast writing messages and talking with their classmates when they stopped by to ask about the messages. It's always a great day for a jumping picture and spreading the truth about tobacco!

If you know of any one in 7th- 12th grade who might be interested in joining FACT send us an email at rethink@co.winnebago.wi.us, call 920-232-3000, or find us on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.
