Community Support! Driftwood Letter from the SSI NDP Club

Solar support

A good number of the members and friends of the Salt Spring NDP Club have undertaken to raise money through individual donations to support the GISS Solar Scholarship Project. As of May 16 we have raised or pledged $2,550 and we continue to raise interest in this activity. An example will be having donation forms available at our spring bazaar on May 31. It occurred to us last week that it would be fun and particularly encouraging to the community to challenge not only our members to support this truly fine idea but to invite members of other political parties (and some who may have no clear affiliation) to meet or beat our continuing support.

Anyone who would like more information or a donation or pledge form is invited to drop in at the United Church hall between 9 a.m. and noon on the 31st. There will be pamphlets as well and an opportunity for a local food soup and sandwich lunch.
