I have felt the sting of poverty, as well as the sweetness of security and success and I don’t want to see everything we’ve worked for fall apart. I will not go gently into that good night. I want to tell you what the world looks like through my eyes so that you can help to change it.”  Admission is free and a light lunch will be provided.  Please RSVP to Ruth Ingersoll by February 16th or 613-968-2466.  CLICK HERE to read and share the flyer.

Radon and children’s health: What you need to know
