This week in the Great Lakes
Town Hall – The (Naked) Ladies of the Lake, A Grassroots Success Story –
Join the discussion online!
week, the Town Hall is pleased to welcome Annette Van Gerwin’s story of
the “Ladies of the Lake.” The
Ladies of the Lake is a dynamic, organic grassroots organization made up of 100
warm and friendly women who are bringing people and government together to save
Lake Simcoe in Ontario.
Ladies of the Lake made its daring debut with the 2006 Ladies of the Lake calendar. Their tasteful calendar exposed more
than their bodies, it promoted the “naked truth” of the poor state
of Lake Simcoe’s environment. Their
calendar and effort raised more than $240,000 for the cause and engaged
countless new advocates. Don't miss your chance to read
about the Ladies of the Lake every day this week - only in the Great Lakes Town Hall!*
addition to guest speakers, the Great Lakes
Town Hall focuses on a new featured Great Lakes issue each week, provided by co-moderators
Jeffrey Potter, Dave Dempsey and
Gary Wilson. This week, Dave asks you to help build his list of 365 ways to
help the Great Lakes! Don't miss this great opportunity to read and
comment on our featured issue – 365 Ways
to Save the Great Lakes - and the views of our guest speakers, The
Ladies of the Lake and , in the Great Lakes Town Hall.
