“When we give cheerfully and accept gratefully, everyone is blessed.” ~Maya Angelou
I am thrilled to welcome Carol Schwartz back home to JRPC. She started 4 years ago as a work-study student and then when she graduated, she became our Administrative Assistant. Today she begins a new journey as our Program Director. Come meet her at our Open House on Saturday, December 7 for the Parade of Lights. We are open 10 am to 7 pm and we’ll be teaching everyone to fold origami cranes from 11 am to 3 pm. We hope to see you for holiday treats and special savings! To thank you for being members, we are offering 25% off fair trade purchases and 75% off our sale items — a deal you can’t beat!! If you’re not yet a member this is a great time to fix that but you can still save 10%. See you Saturday!
But before that, we will be hosting our annual Kid’s Night on Friday, December 6 from 5 to 7. Check the details below. And here’s a nice gift for the Earth. You can help Citizen Initiative I-187 get on the ballot by signing its petition. If passed, I-187 would require that electric utilities use much more renewable energy (& less fossil fuels), would protect and strengthen net metering, would put a small tax on electricity to replace the coal severance tax and fund a worker retraining program for fossil fuel workers. More info at www.mtcares.org. Look for the I-187 petition signature gatherers at First Friday events on Dec 6, Missoula Parade of Lights events on Dec 7 and at the Missoula Holiday Made Fair in UM’s Adams Center on Dec 8. Now’s your chance to give a gift to the Earth.
Let the holidays begin!!
