Earth Day Tomorrow!

This crossed my desk from Mary Jo Farrington, who works in Student Affairs at SDSM&T, just north of Robbinsdale...

This should be a really wonderful event, not withstanding the Marxist overtones.

I highly recommend Karen Hall's talk. DIA's flyer on recycling in Rapid City is excellent, that alone is worth showing up!

April 26th. Bring your friends and forward this on! Thanks!

    Those Norbeck Society guys and gals are the best. Tell them "hi" and "thanks" when you see them.
