The evening will include a silent auction, appetizers, cash bar, guest speaker, Duncan Campbell, and live music by the Amnesians, a local classic rock band.
8:00 Rally for Water!!! Speaker: Duncan Campbell
Highlighting the evening will be Duncan Campbell, member of the Save Our Water Committee speaking at 8:00 about the 2010 ballot initiative to protect Michigan’s fresh water resources. Campbell is treasurer for the Committee and is directing its MiWater ballot initiative campaign. He states, “It is clear the only way to give voice to this threat (sulfide mining) and win the battle for pure water is to take the message to Michigan voters directly via a ballot initiative campaign. This is a powerful and effective tool and provides a grassroots political front to let people take action not only throughout the Lower Peninsula but across the Great Lakes Region and beyond.”
MiWater members will be on hand with information and handouts all evening.
