Just because gas prices have dropped doesn’t mean Ohio should build more highways. Recently, 700 Sierra Club members commented on the Ohio Department of Transportation’s (ODOT) 2014 Statewide Transit Needs Study. Now we have the opportunity to weigh in on the specific projects that ODOT will fund in 2015-2018.
We hope you can join the Sierra Club for our annual Chapter Retreat. As one of the largest and most influential environmental organizations in the state, this is the time each year where we celebrate our victories, renew our spirits, and make our plans the year ahead. All are welcome, and meals will be provided for members who register.

SURVIVAL BRACELETS BEING SOLD AS FUNDRAISER
Bayler Shubert, son of Sierra Club members Mark and Marcia Shubert of Amesville, Ohio has recently been accepted into the People to People Student Ambassador Program. This initiative, started in the 1950’s by President Eisenhower, was meant to expand his vision for cultural understanding and perhaps world peace. Now more than ever this idea should be kept alive. Bayler is excited about this opportunity to learn about diverse cultures and he has a willingness to venture into the world in the name of peace, friendship and understanding. During the summer of 2011, this will become a reality. Bayler has taken on a project to help fund his trip. He is making Survival Bracelets. These bracelets are woven in two colors, using 550# strength parachute cord. There is approx. 10’ of cord in each bracelet. When going into the back woods, wear this bracelet. It can be unwoven and used for emergency purposes such as tourniquets, snares, shoelaces, splints, fishing line, sewing and more! Don’t go into the woods without one! The bracelets are available at Rocky Shoes and Boots in Nelsonville or by contacting Bayler directly at email@example.com. The bracelets are $10.00.
