 Member Laura van der Pol has put out a request that everyone wear green on Earthday, Wednesday April 22, to signal their interest in keeping our earth healthy. The Care and Concern Committee is asking everyone at Live Oak Friends Meeting to wear green on Sunday, April 26, in solidarity with Laura. We will take a picture of us all together in our green shirts, hats, shoes, lipstick - whatever - and send it to her.
If all else fails, there will be green fingernail polish available.
Won't it be FUN!?
