Cross-country climate action marchers arrive in Ligonier today...

From UU Church pastor, Rev. Rebecca Booher:

"The Climate Marchers will be arriving late this afternoon (in Ligonier).  They will be hosted by the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Ligonier Valley.  We are having a potluck supper for them, followed by a discussion.  Everyone is welcome!  (If you come for the potluck, please consider bringing something to share, as there are 50+ marchers!)  Most of the marchers will be staying at the Fellowship for the night... some hardy folks are still planning to sleep outside in their tents!  (My guess is they'll change their minds!)  After an early breakfast, the group will leave around 8 am, and continue their march toward Washington DC, where they plan to arrive Nov. 1.  One (or more) of the marchers will stay behind and speak at the UUFLV Sunday service, which starts at 10:30 am."
