Earth Day Festival Postponed to Sunday, April 26

The following message was sent out shortly ago to our e-list:

Hello friends,

We’re writing to let you know that the Columbia Area Earth Day Festival slated for tomorrow, April 19, is being postponed to Sunday, April 26, due to the likelihood of rain, including possibly thunderstorms and severe weather. We have held off a decision on this until now as the forecast had been frequently changing and, over the past week, often wrong. At this point, however, the prospect of a good weather day looks low, so we are going to our rain date.

Plans are still in the works for the "Come Together, Save the Climate" Climate Action Happening. It will be held at 2:25-2:40 p.m. next Sunday, April 26. We hope you will be there to participate in this dramatic action, as well as the Festival in general.

We really hope that all of you will be able to come out next Sunday, April 26.  We should also note that we are in need of more volunteers for next Sunday, as some folks who were slated to help this week can’t make it next. If you are available to help on that day please contact us by replying to this e-mail or by calling 573-875-0539. Many thanks.

Thinking Sunshine for next Sunday, and wishing you all the best,
Your friends at Peaceworks

P.S. The book discussion of “Eaarth” on Monday, 4/20, the Clean Energy Rally in Jeff City, Wednesday, 4/22 and the screening of “Last Call at the Oasis” Wednesday, 4/22 all featured in our last e-newsletter are all still on for this week as scheduled. Hope to see you at these as well as at Earth Day next Sunday.
