Title: Fwd: nearly final Madison Earth Day to May Day calenda
The parking lot environmentalists still don't get it.  Lots of stuff about "green" cars for the Earth Day to May Day Celebration, but zilch about walking biking, transit. Ugh.

Hello friends,

        Here's the almost finalized 2001 Earth Day to May Day Calendar!  Any changes need to be sent pronto, before we start printing paper versions that will be available for community-wide distribution starting next week.  

        The next Earth Day to May Day planning meeting is scheduled for Thursday April 5th at 6:30 pm in the Conference Room at Madison Teachers Inc. (821 Williamson St.).  We need people power to make all this grassroots celebration happen, so please lend a hand!  If you can't come, but still want to volunteer, call #255-1800 or #262-9036 to see what's up.

                                                Thanks! - John
