Boston Under Water Festival, Sat Oct 24
- I apologize to those of you who are getting this twice, but such is the nature of listservs.Join the contingent of folks biking from Medford to Prospect Park in Somerville and then riding downtown together to join other contingents from all over the greater Boston area, for the festival and a group photo at 3:50 pm. This will be a fun, tongue in cheeck event that will be covered by the media. The point is to send a message to world leaders to take immediate action on climate change. Be part of the biggest statement the world has ever seen!
Meeting place and time for the Medford group will follow.Susan Altman
