All are welcome at the First Annual Celebration of Wild Idaho Rising Tide (WIRT), a Moscow group whose exuberant activism confronts the root causes of climate change. On Saturday, March 31, WIRT’s one-year anniversary, revel in a benefit concert by Jeanne McHale and Corn Mash along with a potluck, beer and wine, and a slide show and videos to savor successes. Participate in a parade through downtown with the Moscow Volunteer Peace Band, gathering by 7 pm in Friendship Square and joining the festivities at the 1912 Center Great Room at 412 East Third Street in Moscow, Idaho. For $5 or greater voluntary admission/raffle donations, enjoy home-cooked food and no-host drinks provided by community members and businesses from 7 pm until midnight, politically-charged music by Jeanne McHale and friends between 7:30 and 8:30 pm, and the invigorating, danceable songs of Corn Mash from 9 pm to midnight. For further information or to offer event support, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 208-301-8039.
Thanks to a member’s donation of 40 off-white, large T-shirts, WIRT will offer the displayed limited edition, collectors’ item design at our First Annual Celebration on Saturday, March 31. We have reserved complimentary shirts for each of the 12 arrestees and the rest for purchase by Moscow area protesters, to be worn as honorable badges of intense, shared courage and history. After vigilant activists deservedly receive the originals, we may print a second batch of megaload protest or organizational logo T-shirts, so please contact WIRT soon to request some of these $20 shirts.
