Water: Nature’s Gift

Free Event!

Pecan Park
April 22, 2018
2 – 5 pm

On April 22, 2018 the world will celebrate the 48th annual Earth Day with events to demonstrate support for environmental protection for the planet we call home.
Now more than ever we need to celebrate the beauty and natural resources of our planet, and work together to protect it.

Our second annual water event, “Water: Nature’s Gift” will focus on the need to protect our region’s rivers and streams.

Please join us as we celebrate our water at Pecan Park on Sunday, April 22 from 2:00-5:00. It will be a fun afternoon of live music, speakers, informational booths concerning our local water, games and activities for children, organized hikes to LaNana Creek to pick up trash and of course some delicious watermelon!

There will be plenty of drinking water available in coolers, and those attending are asked to bring a refillable water bottle to cut down on waste.

If your group is interested in having a water-related booth please contact Resilient Nacogdoches.

Our Voices: A Group of Concerned Citizens 

Our Voices is a group of concerned citizens who want to share their opinions, thoughts and ideas through the print media. Our Vision is to move our friends and neighbors and community to become more open, progressive and flexible/cooperative and to give ourselves a public voice. We have five general goals:    1. To have Letters to the Editor, Shout Outs or Guest Editorials in the Daily Sentinel articulating progressive issues at least three times per week.

    2. Support each other in print as well as within our group.

    3. Define issues as each member, as an individual, wants to address.

    4. Possibly, some of us would be willing to help clarify concerns for our group.

    5. Because of the thought necessary to write a letter, this process will help each of us be able to verbalize more articulately as we share our concerns with our community.

 

This group began meeting in February, 2017. We have decided to meet monthly on the Third Friday of each month at NOON for one hour (folks are welcome to stay longer but the meeting is basically from noon to one and bring your lunch if that is convenient for you). Our current concern is not only various issues of our own but also to expand the group to hear the voices of the many people in our community of whom we may not be aware.
