Everyone is invited to CEWAC on Thursday, March 14 at 6 pm for a talk by former 3-term Mayor of Grand Rapids, George Heartwell, a staunch advocate for a healthy environment. Even though President Trump has initiated the process to withdraw the U.S. from the Paris Accord, Mr. Heartwell will share the basis for his optimism that its goals can still be achieved in this country. This presentation is part of the monthly CEWAC general meeting (Citizens Environmental Watch and Action Coalition) of Newaygo County. CEWAC is open to all who have a passion about the health of our environment. Our primary focus is on improving life in Newaygo County. The group meets the 2nd Thursday monthly at 6 pm in the meeting room at Brooks Township Hall, 490 Quarterline St., Newaygo. Participants discuss known issues, and research and learn about issues we should be more familiar with. We meet as a whole group and break up into smaller focus groups. Every other month, we have a guest speaker and encourage the community at large to join us and learn about local initiatives, efforts, and concerns. The group is always open to all. Come to listen and learn, or roll up your sleeves, or anything in between.
