SBCAN members and friends invited to important Sierra Club meeting Friday in Lompoc

The Arguello Group, one of four groups in the Los Padres Chapter of the Sierra Club, has invited SBCAN members to a meeting this Friday, March 17, at 6:30 PM at the Presbyterian Church at 1600 Berkeley Dr., Lompoc

Jim Hines, President of the Los Padres Chapter has been in Washington, DC this week lobbying Congress to protect our National Parks and other wild lands from the policies of the current administration. He will speak about what he learned while there and how we can make a difference in this battle as well.

SBCAN board members Janet Blevins and Rebecca August co-chair the Arguello Group and they wrote:

Please join us at 6:30 for dinner at the Presbyterian Church and bring a friend! Paper goods, drinks, lasagna and a light dessert will be provided. Feel free to bring a salad to share if you are so inclined or come and enjoy what will be provided.

We will be asking for donations from those who wish to help cover the costs of the lasagna and the room rental. It promises to be a delicious meal and an informative and motivational program.

Please RSVP to Rosemary Holmes via phone or email so we can be sure to have enough food: [email protected] or 805-735-3974 or to Janet at [email protected].

A preview of topics for April and May include the impending oil rush in Cat Canyon, the new and improved Lompoc wind energy project and a special viewing of the documentary Gaviota. This 43 minute film opened at the Santa Barbara Film Festival last month to rave reviews and Al Thompson is working hard to arrange a showing here in Lompoc.

We will also briefly discuss the Earth Day Celebration in May in Buellton and will ask for volunteers to help us reach out to the public to find new members. 

This administration has inspired millions of new activists around the nation. Our Arguello Group Executive Committee is committed to encouraging them to help us fight to protect our environment and our future. The time is NOW!

See you on March 17.

Fighting for our future,

Janet and Rebecca
