Monthly Guest Speaker
For our meeting on April 13, and in honor of Earth Day, Patty Dreier, former County Executive and long time member of the Portage County Democratic Party, will be our program presenter and introduce us to her book EMPOWERED: One Planet at a Time. "As a former elected official and someone with diverse background and experience, Patty offers an inside scoop on how to influence community leaders and legislators. Her life stories about being an environmental educator, community leader, activist to protect water resources, and organizer for Earth Day in the United States and Germany inspire hope, courage, and action." Patty has a Master of Science degree in Natural Resource Management/Environmental Education and " inspires readers to see themselves as citizens of Planet Earth with all the authority they need to be powerful agents for change." If you would like to get a copy of Patty's book before her presentation, you can get one at Kindred Spirit Books as well as Barnes & Noble, Amazon, or Kobo.
