At Shamrock the Block 2008, green is more than just the official color, it's the new way to do things. In addition to music from Southern rockers The Georgia Satellites (pictured), activities for the wee ones (kids, not leprechauns), and loads of food and beverages, Shamrock is also environmentally friendly. The generators at the event will be powered by bio-diesel and the folks from Waste Management will be around to tell you how to make your home more "green." The event will be held on 18th Street between Grace and Main streets Saturday, March 15, noon-6 p.m. Admission is free and all proceeds benefit Richmond SCAN (Stop Child Abuse Now). 304-6870.
