Feel free to bring your literature to put on our peak oil table at
this Labor Day afternoon event and help us chat with the folks.
Japhet Creek, a mile long tributary to Buffalo Bayou is wanting your
help. For decades, it's been the dumping ground for tires, concrete,
and trash. The Japhet Civic Association in partnership with the
Buffalo Bayou Partnership is restoring the creek to its natural
beauty. To help fund this exciting effort, the Japhet Civic
Association in partnership with Kennywould Events is having a fun day
of bands on Labor Day, Monday September 5th from 3-11 pm. Sponsors
include Green Mountain Energy and Whole Foods - Bellaire. The event
will be held at 4601 Clinton Dr., south of the historic Fifth
Ward. The festivities will feature the boogie sounds of headliner
Redeye Carl & the Pirates. Other bands include KP Trio, Ben and
Rosalee, The Benny Brasket Band, and the Hightailers. Tickets are
only $5 at the door. Bring the family and friends for a fun day of
music, tours of the creek, and family activities. We'll also have
vendor's booths of representatives from organizations in Houston that
are working to make Houston a more sustainable city.
