Bring an Hors d’ oeuvres for sharing, we furnish wine and other beverages and Join us this evening as we take the time to celebrate Earth Day and reflect on what active roll each one of us can play in supporting efforts to sustain, improve and minimize the impact the we humans have on our environment and all creatures that call this world home.

This is truly a success story of how, when we do the right thing to correct the course of a negative impact on the world, we help to heal and restore the delicate natural balance.  It starts with understanding that we humans are but a single strand in the web of life and that what we do as a single species has an impact on the whole web. Christine will have her rehabbed Bald Eagle with her.
