Poster by Sally Chapin.
Come hear Michael Shuman (nationally known author, attorney, economist, & NPR radio guest) speak on the timely topic of engaging local communities in collective action during these trying economic times. 
His recent books -- The Small-Mart Revolution: How Local Businesses are Beating the Global Competition and Going Local: Creating Self-Reliant Communities in the Global Age -- offer a breadth of experience and hands-on knowledge that is not to be missed. 
Michael Shuman was recently appointed Director of Research and Public Policy of the national BALLE organization and has given the Obama administration his thoughts on the necessity for stimulating the local economy. He will address how we can support the local economy, not just through purchasing locally and consuming locally produced and grown products, but by investing in local micro-lenders, credit unions, co-ops and other local business start ups.
The speaker program begins at 7:00 p.m. Fort Worden Commons- FREE- a very good investment!!!


This event is made available  by WSU Extension- EDC/ TEAM JEFFERSON, Local 2020, Local Investing Opportunities Network, and BALLE Jefferson County- Rhody Revolution! 

Great Kid Adventure - Port Townsend Marine Science

Sunday afternoon family time can be really fun and educational for the kids. I am well past the "kid age" but I was as involved as anyone when we took our 5 and 8 year old grand kids to the marine exhibit.

Moh not only greeted us, he made sure that we knew we could ask any questions we might have. He explained how to touch the sea creatures in the exhibits. He really knew his stuff about the way they lived and how they searched for food.
Linda explains how the fish is able to find protection in the rocks and grasses.
