The oil vigil held in Ken Thompson park earlier this month was a great success, connecting Sarasota with hundreds of other communities around the country in support of clean energy. We here in Laurel Park and the rest of Sarasota are fortunate to have year round access to white sand beaches and turquoise waters. The deepwater horizon tragedy has reminded us all how fragile these gifts really are.
We are expecting nearly 200 people at tonight’s vigil. I know we can mobilize to make this the largest BP Gulf Disaster vigil in Florida. If you have not already rsvp’d, please go to the link below and register. Please forward this to your friends & network. I am getting feedback that this is a “button pusher” for a lot of folks. Everyone wants to do something, but knowing the best thing to do is hard right now. THIS is going to be a GIANT step in the right direction. Please come out and show your support.
The vigil will be held on Tuesday, June 8 at 7 pm
City Island, Ken Thompson Parkway, Sarasota
