Don’t Spray Me & Sierra Club picnic & celebration

Thank you to all who were able to come to the Don’t Spray Me & Sierra Club picnic & celebration in Everhart Park on Sunday May 28.  Defending our environment and health is not all work! We are expanding our network of conscientious citizens and have been reaching out effectively beyond West Chester Borough.

Here are a few photos of the event.

Picnic & celebrate with DSM and Sierra Club on Sunday May 28

Please  join us our season-opening Dontsprayme / Sierra Club celebration in Everhart Park at 4-6 p.m. on Sunday May 28.

As in September, we’ll have various displays (like the ever-popular bat houses), environmental games, and (new this  year) music and bike-decorating.

What do we have to celebrate?

– A 2016 summer of fewer mosquitoes and no spraying in West Chester

– Branching out in neighboring communities.

– Renewed consciousness of people standing up to threats against environmental and human health in American life today.

We’ll also be  bringing you up to date on plans for pushing back both mosquitoes and pesticides this summer and other measures to defend our environment.

If you didn’t receive the invitation with further details, please contact us by emailing Margaret Hudgings or calling 610-692-3849.
