Saturday, February 4 2012, from 10am - 3pm at the annual Shiver on the River

Something wonderful is happening! This Saturday, February 4, from 10am - 3pm at the annual Shiver on the River:
On this one day, the Belle Isle Aquarium will be open and it has 10 tanks filled with fish!!! 8 fresh water and 2 salt water. There is a 4 foot shark, a giant gourami in the first tank which housed "Gramps", a school of tilapia, a red-tailed catfish which was at one time the mascot, and the beginnings of a salt water reef filled with crabs, anemones, and colorful fish. Up to 60 volunteers have been cleaning and stocking these tanks for the past 4 weeks.
There is no charge. Please come and support this effort so that one day the Belle Isle Aquarium will be opened on a permanent basis.

"The question is not 'Can you make a difference?' You already do make a difference.

It's just a matter of what kind of difference you want to make during your life on this planet."

– Julia Butterfly Hill

Hill is best known for living in a 180-foot (55 m)-tall, 600-year-old California Redwood tree for 738 days between December 10, 1997 to December 18, 1999. Hill lived in the tree, affectionately known as "Luna," to prevent loggers of the Pacific Lumber Company from cutting it down.

I will remember Troy Davis…..
