As Hurricane Sandy bears down on the east coast, it was great to see this positive email from our friend, and 350 Maine coordinator, Bob Klotz.
Just a quick note to report in on a few things...reinforcing the reality of things continuing to progress towards an incredible night in Portland on 11/13
Today, we had our first ever 350 Maine Statewide Meeting - quite a success...including a strong commitment to SOLIDARITY - including with the incredible activists in Texas with the Tar Sands Blockade (the attached picture intentionally created to reinforce our support of their courage).
We had quite the turn-out - with LOTS of passion for all things 350...and tremendous excitement for the DO THE MATH Tour. And a great multi-generational vibe...with many students!
Wish we had recorded it - but it was a great chance, during our Do the Math breakout workshop, to talk with Greg, Mark and Peter of Melodeego. Mutual excitement expressed...with an agreement to consider pre-Tour promotion. Appreciate the guys taking the time with us as they were preparing to play at the 350MA Vigil
I'm thinking that their powerful message - and music - will help keep us all grounded with the impending "storm" (both literal and figurative) - and express appreciation for the wonderful experience that has already begun!
Thanks to all for making this happen...looking forward to continuing to play together over the coming weeks - and beyond.
Team 350 Maine
