CLIMATE ACTION CALENDAR, 2022
From Alan Northcutt:
14-15: Chalk Waco 2022. Waco
Friends of the Climate has collaborated on a 10'X10' chalk mural on the topic
of the climate crisis with renowned local artist Susan Sistrunk. Our
concept has met her artistic skill and produced a powerful mural entitled
"Our Choice." We encourage all members to attend this event and
come view our entry, on an alley at 7th and Austin Ave. downtown. The
event will happen on Saturday, 12 to 8pm and Sunday 12 to 5pm. I plan to
be there around opening time on Saturday, hoping to give out our climate information
cards. There will also be other murals to see, food, art activities,
music and a fashion show. Please attend and support our effort at climate
education and inspiration. To reach me on Saturday or Sunday, text
June, 2022: Waco Friends of the Climate Meeting. Our May meeting did not materialize because of a family issue. We are working on a venue for June and will announce the specifics as soon as available. I understand that everyone is eager to have a live meeting after the prolonged pandemic interruption, and we feel the same. Suggestions for a venue are welcome, especially if they satisfy the following criteria: large enough for 45 people, projector and screen for slide shows and films, and rules allowing food and drink in the meeting room. Email me with any suggestions: firstname.lastname@example.org.
September 13, 14, 17: Waco Sustainability Conference. Save the date. Details to follow.
October 15,16 : Iron Man Triathlon. We were requested by a friend to provide volunteers for this athletic event and agreed to do so. Anyone who would like to volunteer, please email me at email@example.com.
October 29: FREE Trees to Address the Climate Crisis. In light of the success of our first tree distribution, we are planning a second event for 9am until 2pm at the Downtown Farmer's Market. We will distribute the very popular and beautiful Crepe Myrtle, the Biloxi variety that grows to 30ft. and has pink flowers. The species is drought tolerant and firesmart, according to Texas A&M Forestry Service. Volunteers will be needed.
November 7-18: COP 27. The COP 27 will be in Sharm El-Sheikh Egypt this year. We plan to attend this session and other members may join us. This is a great opportunity for climate education, and we may also participate in actions of civil society inside and outside the venue.
