NO MEETING THIS WEEK
Out of respect for concern of our members, we'll not have a meeting this week. We'll take it week by week! Be safe everyone! (And wash your hands!)
LOOK AT THEIR FEET
Last week we saw a short video about the girl's education program at Gorongosa National Park. If you look closely at this picture, you'll notice that every one of those girls is wearing the Shoes That Grow!
DO GREENBELT BIRDS READ?
We have reinstalled the Little Free Library at the Greenbelt park, with its new roof. It's well stocked with a variety of books. We have also discovered that the birdhouses we built have been installed. Thanks to Jim Sears of Eagle/Garden city for building those! We're still waiting for word on a schedule to move the monument.
 
T SHIRTS ARE IN!
For those of you who ordered your polo shirts a few weeks back, don't forget to bring your money for this Tuesday's meeting! Long Sleeve Polos where $40 and Short Sleeve Polos were $35.
