WRR meets the second Monday of every month at the
Golden Hill Health Center - 7 PM
MAKING A DIFFERENCE AND HAVING FUN DOING IT
One of the most distinctive features of the Connecticut shoreline is 14-acre Charles Island (a.k.a. Thrice Cursed Island), just off the coast of Milford at Silver Sands State Park. It is connected to the mainland by a tombolo or sandbar which, during low tide, emerges to provide a shining causeway that allows visitors to reach the island. Understanding tide charts is the key to planning a visit to Charles Island and filmographer Ed Dorso will show footage and discuss the ecology and tidal opportunities to walk to the island at our May WRR meeting!
Next Month's program: We will visit the SmartLiving Center in Orange
For May, the Action Committee will be collecting non-perishable food to fill the empty shelves at our local food banks.
Next month's Action Committee project will be collecting food for the animal shelter!
We continue to welcome your generous food donations for the hungry and our sock bank is always open!
