Holidays and me

Recently I haven’t done too well with holidays. March 17 was just the latest chapter.

    Hey Steve,
    My name is Ryan and I am a student at Chico State. I am with the Earth Month Committee and we coordinate all of the earth month events here on campus. We have over 60 events in 30 days and we need all the help we can get in promoting the events.
    I think a lot of our events would make for some great topics for you to write about. Below I have included a sampling of events that celebrate different parts of sustainability, for a full listing of events you can go to
    If you have any questions feel free to call or email me.
