Something to ponder....My friends, love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful, and optimistic. And we’ll change the world. Words from Jack Layton’s “Letter to Canadians” delivered August 22, 2011.

Thank You! to all those volunteers and organizations that made the 4th Annual Kids for Saving Earth Eco-camp a great experience for our kids this year. We are humbled and inspired by the willingness of the whole community to pitch in, whatever way they can, to help our children connect to the natural world.
Thank You! to all those who came out to Make a Joyful Noise! our annual all-music service.
