The Neahtawanta Research and Education Center (NREC) celebrated its 30th anniversary on Friday, June 16, 2017. Highlights of the evening included a porch concert featuring longtime activists and musicians Sally Rogers and Claudia Schmidt, remarks from NREC director Sally Van Vleck, and the announcement of the next book in the Bob Russell Resilience Reading Project – “The Death and Life of the Great Lakes” by Dan Egan.

Below are photos of the event, which took place at the Neahtawanta Community-Supported Inn, home of the NREC. For more about the center and its current projects, visit their website.

A NOTE FROM JANE: I started Old Mission Gazette in 2015 because I felt a calling to provide the Old Mission Peninsula community with local news. After decades of writing for newspapers and magazines like the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Family Circle and Ladies' Home Journal, I really just wanted to write about my own community where I grew up on a cherry farm and raised my own family. So I started my own newspaper.

Because Old Mission Gazette is a "Reader Supported Newspaper" -- meaning it exists because of your financial support -- I hope you'll consider tossing a few bucks our way if I mention your event, your business, your organization or your news item, or if you simply love reading about what's happening on the OMP. In a time when local news is becoming a thing of the past, supporting an independent community newspaper is more important now than ever.
