Next Tuesday night: Terrific documentary about sustainability and climate change

Please put us on your calendar for next Tuesday, December 15th, at 7 PM
At the historic Grand Theatre for the screening of:
"Cowspiracy, The Sustainability Secret"  
The science and research on the true impacts of animal agriculture is growing daily. Can we continue on our current path when we know that it is not sustainable?
 Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret is a groundbreaking feature-length environmental documentary following filmmaker Kip Andersen as he uncovers the most destructive industry facing the planet today - and investigates why the world's leading environmental organizations are too afraid to talk about it.
"Cowspiracy may be the most important film made to inspire saving the planet", -- Louie Psihoyos, Oscar winning director of "The Cove".
