Canary Coalition to chart its course at annual meeting

The Canary Coalition will hold its annual membership meeting from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Thursday, June 30, in Sylva.

All members of the public interested in grassroots action to further this cause are invited. There will be a general discussion about the direction of the organization. Director Avram Friedman called the past year a “landmark” one for the group.

The Canary Coalition began in 1999 as a small, dedicated group of grassroots activists who were determined to bring clean air back to the mountains of Western North Carolina. Since then the organization has grown to include more than 2,000 people, organizations and businesses. Most are here in North Carolina, but there are now 23 states with members represented in the Canary Coalition.

The Canary Coalition’s annual meeting includes a potluck dinner. Bring a favorite dish to share, along with a plate or bowl, cup and silverware.

The results of the annual board of directors’ elections will be announced at the meeting.

The meeting will be at the Community Services Building, room 234, at 538 Scotts Creek Road.
