Meeting April 2, 2014

Dear Community,

We were unable to secure a guest speaker for the month of April. Therefore, we invite you to an open forum discussion. The “mic” is open to everyone who has a passion for sustainable living. We will call for topics at 6:30 and open the “mic” to YOU!

This could prove quite fun and enlightening. You can share your knowledge, ask burning questions to have others answer, or even show-and-tell your own reliance.

 

Open-Forum-Open Mic

begins at 6:30 at the Graham Fire Hall on 70th Ave.
