Busy Week Ahead: Patrick Holden 10th Movie 12th

And we need your help as a volunteer!  And hope you’ll look forward to being in the audience for the speaker and the  movie on these nights.

More about the free Patrick Holden event on Nov 10.


Message from Jackie Crenshaw, SustainFloyd President:

Dear Friends

Thanks to all of you who have responded to our requests for help at the Tuesday, November 10 event at the Floyd EcoVillage. We are truly excited to have Patrick Holden address the community here in Floyd, and for the opportunity to hear about his efforts in the global sustainability movement and his thoughts about what each of us can contribute.

When we heard that Patrick Holden would be coming this way on November 10 we jumped at the opportunity, inspite of the fact that we had a film scheduled on November 12.Now we need to also give due consideration to that film, and I’m reaching out once again to ask for your help. I have attached a flyer for the film.

Its an important issue, especially as we look at how the work started by our Farm to School project might be continued after the grant funding finishes. We will have a great panel for the discussion after the film, Tracy Ann Costello, Meredith Dean and Dr. Jerusalem Walker. Please circulate this to your contacts.

Also, we are serving a healthy meal of soup and salad before the film. Please let me know if you could contribute one of the following:

Salad side dish
Fruit platter
Cheese platter
Any other healthy snacks

After this we have only one more event in 2016–a film on December 10–at which we will have a pot luck dinner.

Many thanks,

Jackie Crenshaw, Pres.
