CLIMATE ACTION Our church is doing a big thing for the environment by installing solar panels. There are also smaller lifestyle changes we can each individually do. Summer is a good time to shop local farmers’ markets. Local products are climate friendly because they require less energy to transport them to market. Also they are fresher, taste better and are grown by small farmers in our own community. More and more small local farmers are using organic methods and avoiding fuel-based fertilizers and pesticides. This month try adding more local, organic produce to your diet. SAVE GOD’S EARTH.
MESSAGE FROM BRYAN CAIRNS Dear Friends here and everywhere, What a wonderful time it has been to know you all. 51 years on Mercer Island. Thank you to so many people who have touched my life in many ways. Through pleasurable activities, the church, in civic affairs, and other endeavors. I appreciate you all. Thank you for your help in benefiting the Island whether through the building of the library, the community center or other activities. When I pass, I will be leaving my wife Sue, my love for 53 years, and my two girls, and three grandchildren. I can only thank you all for the friendships we have all shared. My love and thanks to all, Bryan
