A planning and playing holiday party this Sunday, Dec. 18

our tipi at standing rock

The tipi that has graced the grounds of our Environmental Cottage is now doing the same at Standing Rock.

miki sos smallThis coming Sunday, 18December2016, from 4 to 6 p.m., will be a holiday party at the Environmental Cottage, and also a planning session for the year to come.

The original topic for this gather was to be an examination of Wednesdays at the Water’s Edge in view of declining participation in the past few years.

Another agenda item is a proposal for a series on white privilege.  If you can, follow this link and sample the rich offering of materials that the United Church of Christ denomination is offering on this subject.

Other items for discussion include a proposal for a educational camp on our site, possible Riverkeeper collaborations, West River Parkway closing and implications for R-S, WNY Land Conservancy/Town land behind R-S (wetlands protection), possible resolutions for UCC Synod, June 30-July 4 in Baltimore, 2017 — see http://www.ucc.org/news_call_to_general_synod_31_12052016); and interfaith climate justice planning.

Bring food and drink!
