The Issues Roundtable hosts Earth Day celebration April 22

Press release from The Issues Roundtable:

Join our Earth Day Celebration on Monday, April 22!  This is the second in a series of Non-Partisan Local Issue Forums, presented by Issues Roundtable.  We’re starting at 4:30 p.m. with fun, home-made, environmental posters (free supplies) to wave at cars in front of 500 Mill Street, Downtown Sylva at 5:00 p.m. At 6:15 p.m. everyone will celebrate with a big Earth Day Cake.  

Then at 6:30 p.m. everyone is invited to our “Environmental Local Issue Forum” featuring Brennon and Jill Basham as speakers. Afterwards we’ll have questions, discussion & also socialize while we finish the cake.

“Earth Day originated as a way to celebrate our planet, while simultaneously highlighting our need to be good stewards of the Earth.  As a popular saying goes, ‘There is no Planet B,’ so we have to make sure we take care of the planet we have” noted Frank Burrell, Jackson County Democratic Party Chair.

The Issues Roundtable will feature a Local Issue Forum most of the coming months on the 4th Monday, and will present different subjects that affect Jackson County.  The Local Issue Forums are not promoting any political agenda with the hope that all opinions will join in to the discussions.  The Issues Roundtable is a group affiliated with the Jackson County Democratic Party; JCDP is located at 500 Mill Street, downtown Sylva and will be the location of most Local Issue Forums.
