Sep 18, 2014: Hayden Park News 22 & 23
Friends meet on the bridge. 8/30/14 (Kevin Kane)
This is a reminder that our friends from the Great Ames Area Race (GAAR) will be presenting us with a check from their fund raising event on our behalf. The presentation will be at the Ada Hayden shelter (north parking lot) on Wednesday evening, Sept. 24, at 5:30 pm. Everyone welcome.
For those who are concerned about global warming (aka climate change) there will be a screening of the film Disruption, which is about the People's Climate March, in New York City next Sunday. The film will be shown in the Cardinal room of the ISU Memorial Union at 2:00 pm. Following the film, the group will move to a rally at Welch and Lincoln Way at 3:30 pm. The event is called Climate Solidarity and is sponsored by the Ames Chapter, Citizens Climate Lobby and several student organizations.
See here for more information http://act.350.org/, and please let others in your circle know about it.
Sorry, in my last News article, I forgot to include tomorrow evening's event (Thursday, Sept. 18).
Tomorrow evening, the Friends of the Ada Hayden Heritage Park group is sponsoring the second annual Prairie Words – an open reading of prairie related literature in a slightly belated celebration of Iowa Prairie Heritage Week:
Prairie Words: Sharing Writings Related to Prairies
6 to 8 pm, Thursday, September 18th
Ada Hayden Heritage Park - meet at the shelter.
In celebration of Iowa Prairie Heritage Week, participants are asked to bring their favorite passage of prairie literature or a piece of original writing with a prairie focus (poems, lyrics, short essays or stories, etc.).
The weather is predicted to be nice, so we’ll likely take a short walk to read near one of the prairie areas -- dress accordingly. Bring a folding chair if you wish. The maximum length of each reading will be based on the number of readers present, but will probably be ~5 minutes. Please note that this is a family-friendly event.
Come to read or just to enjoy others' "prairie words"! For more information, contact Deb Lewis, firstname.lastname@example.org; 515-290-6736.
