Got Time for Serendipity?

Synchronicity is the only decent planning tool sometimes for me.

Sue Sylvester at Adolfson & Peterson Construction was incredibly helpful and supportive in many ways to the club.

The volunteer work in the community she gives tirelessly to support the environment is exceptional.

Mary Holden is another amazing person. Her work in Raising Arizona Kids Magazine includes calling attention to green efforts and projects in schools. She was incredibly kind to send me a copy of Last Child in the Woods by Robert Louv. Reading that book opened my eyes to a world I thought I knew but then realized I had a whole lot more to understand - a wonderful gift for me indeed.
