Upcoming Events 

Just send an email with the link to the upcoming event and I will post it here.

Because the DRBC meetings are such an important upcoming event, I have placed it as the headliner of this webspace,  everthing else is listed by date..

JANUARY 19 - JANUARY 26, 2011
DRBC Hearing Set to Shut Down Well Drilling in Watershed.  

(This event has been cancelled...The details are posted on the DRBC website and a summary is also posted on the homepage of this webpage......)

This is possibly the most important event.  The DRBC is the LEGAL Guardian of the water in the Delaware Watershed.  The future Quality of life for over 17 million people will be determined by these 6 people....Please research, write your comments and attend this meeting if it is at all possible...This cannot be stressed enough....This is a very important event for the Delaware River Watershed.

Gloria Forouzan gtforouzan@gmail.com has invited you to join the PA 2011 Inauguration Rally group with this message:

Just started this google group for PA people who are interested in helping to organize a Marcellus Rally during Tom Corbett’s Inauguration, which, I believe, will be held on
Tuesday, Jan. 18, 2011 at the state Capitol, Harrisburg.

All levels of involvement are welcome: sharing news of our progress with your lists, organizing rides to Harrisburg for people in your area, sending out press releases, etc.
I’ve heard that Gene Stilp is working on a permit for a rally & I believe we should coordinate with planning efforts he’s already engaged in.
Please feel free to invite anyone else who might be interested in helping us on this effort.

Here is the group's description:       Organizing group for Pennsylvanians planning a rally/protest in Harrisburg during Tom Corbett's inauguration.

On 11/17/10, Gloria Forouzan <gtforouzan@gmail.com> wrote: Yesterday Nathan Tooy, who is in Harrisburg, emailed me: "Gloria, Gas Truth of Central Pa is coordinating [for the 1/2011 Inauguration], with Gene Stilp and others. We are coming up with a plan that we are going to share with everyone. We will let you know how things progress."

Today I received a call from my state senator's office, Sen. Ferlo is reaching out to us & would like to be of service in our organizing efforts for 1/2011. We are meeting next week, so I'll be able to> report back with more details then. The word is spreading, support for this demonstration is growing. How great would it be to have 1,000 people in Harrisburg, holding signs from all of the counties in PA? Gloria
