The day went well! I gave a multimedia presentation about Keeping Our Earth Green, highlighting the Catholic Church's tradition of reverence for the Earth. We had one newspaper show up and take photos – The Evangelist (Catholic newspaper for the Diocese). I hope to see a story and photos in there soon! There was a tie in the vote, so the donation was split between two organizations - The National Audubon Society and The Nature Conservancy - and the kids were very enthusiastic!
