South Central Michigan Greens to Meet
at Albion Biggby's 5-7pm May 20

The South Central Michigan Greens will hold their monthly meeting on
Saturday, May 20 from 5 to 7pm in the meeting room at the Albion
Biggby's Coffee, 217 East Michigan Avenue.

The meeting had been scheduled for 2:30 to 4:30pm in the Elsie Munro
Room at the Albion District Library, but the plans changed after
water-main work on Superior Street was announced to begin on Wednesday.

The Green Party of Michigan local group was formed earlier this year. It
covers Calhoun, Jackson, and Hillsdale Counties, and has been meeting in
various places to reach out to the communities.

Planning an ongoing schedule of dates and places for future meetings
will be on the agenda.  So will discussion of issues and activities to
get involved in, materials on how to campaign for office and how to go
door-to-door to find new members and issues, and information about the
state party's opposition to a misleading ballot proposal.
