Join in wood-chip blitz; get free laurel and hardy handshake

miki soos logoJoin us this Sunday, May 8th, (any time from 1-2 p.m. onward) to celebrate our Riverside-Salem Environmental Sabbath/Earth Day (Mother Earth Day)/ You can participate in wood-chipping the paths at the cottage and through the adjoining Town land or in generally cleaning/sprucing the garden beds and grounds.  Please bring gloves and any implements (pitchforks, wheelbarrows, rakes, etc.).  Snacks/potluck likely, too.  :-).

RS Environmental Sanctuary, 3449 West River Road, Grand Island, NY 14072.

Here is your laurel and hardy handshake.

Programs for the rest of May:

May 15            Chris Barbera, Dreamers, Romans and Prisons: Meditations on Crime, Illness, Healing and Liberation. Chris will speak about the method of creating a theory and practice of justice, creativity and intelligence by collaborating and facilitating rather than advocating and educating – and then creating a network by mailing the words of inmates back to prison inmates.  June will speak about “Women Respond to Attica,” an article in the book.

May 22            Paul & Linda McQuillan show DVD: “THE ARMOR OF LIGHT.”  In The Armor Of Light Reverend Rob Schenck, antiabortion activist and fixture on the political far right, breaks with orthodoxy by questioning whether being pro-gun is consistent with being pro-life. Rev. Schenck is shocked and perplexed by the reactions of his long-time friends and colleagues who warn him away from this complex, politically explosive issue.  The McQuillans are Upstate Coordinators of New Yorkers Against Gun Violence.
