Two gatherings this week. On Sunday we have our very own event. From 1-3pm we will be celebrating "solar panels soon" (next couple of months). They will cover the HUGE sign painted on my roof last year for the day of climate action. (Check Peggy's roof on page 6 of this week's Cascadia Weekly.)

Join us at Peggy's at 5648 Orchard Dr. Bring food for a late lunch, brunch or whatever. Call 384-0861 for directions.

Don't miss our "Second Tuesday", 10/12 at 6:30 we will be at Laurita and Judith D's 2463 Hilltop Rd, Ferndale. Join us for interesting conversation about everything transition. Call for directions, 380-0456.

Judith's last email announcing Transition Ferndale meetings initially stated
the wrong evening for our regular meetings. Later in the email she mentioned Tuesdays, and we are in fact scheduled for the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of each month. I hope to see you at my house this Tuesday, the 28th

Thanks to Laurita and Judith D for hosting a great time at their house last Tuesday. Each time we are getting to know each other better.

There are enough of us that communication is becoming complicated. From now on we will post events here but will send out the details to our Transition Ferndale email list. If you want to be on the list to receive all the news, please send me your email address. For privacy you can friend me and send your email in a message.

Upcoming Events: In general we are sticking to our 2nd and 4th Tuesday gatherings. Movie nights are on hiatus for the summer.

Tues, May 25: Potluck Tina Hoban’s place. Contact Tina or me for info.

Sun, May 30: Terese is planning a native plant / mushroom educational foray. Contact Terese for info and carpools.

Tues, June 8: Gathering at Keith's.
