US National Weather Service is predicting temps heading for 90 degrees by Thursday.
Toledo Community Library affirms they’ll boast about the climate-controlled comfort until 7 PM Thursday.
Will post updates on cooling centers and how-to cooling ideas at home.
MAP enrichment programs shared: Did you know that our own democratic process can be traced back to Vikings?!
Monday at camp, “settlers” staked their claims, made Rune (Norse) signs to represent their settlements, began work on shelters, played games, voted on rules of fair play and even innovated a few tools along the way, just like many early Norse settlers did. But unlike many Vikings of old, these settlers are proving to be collaborative, respectful, honorable, kind to the earth and to one another (with the help of a superhero team of 6 and 7 year olds of course!).

Lewis County Permaculture Society posted:
A new article for the Earth Repair Hub section of Michael Pilarski's Friends of the Trees Society website: Earth Repair & Permaculture
"Here is a tiny bit of introduction to some of the ways that permaculture can aid world-wide restoration. At this point in history it is imperative that humanity stop beating the planet up and start working to heal the damage we have done. I like to call it Earth Repair."
