By now we are sure that you have heard something re the school students plan to strike (away from school) on Friday 15th March.
Main event planned so far is at Corbett Garden in Bowral from 10:00am till noon.
To supplement this event and to cater to students in Moss Vale and surrounds, the Seniors’ volunteer groups, CANWin, Grey Power Protecting Climate and the Moss Vale Community Garden are organising a follow-up event at the Moss Vale Community Garden starting at 1:00pm.
Many members of these Seniors’ groups, as well as other adults, are keen to show acknowledgment and support for these students by attending these functions.
You are invited to join us in demonstrating our support and our desire to make politicians aware of the problems that the people of the future generations will face in dealing with global warming problems.
We look forward to seeing you at either or both of these events.
