First and foremost, we hope everyone is doing well and COVID19 free. These are some very unusual times for all of us, but we are strong and will through this. Try to find the positive things to think about and not the negatives.
Second, next Sunday, April 26, 2020, we are hosting our first Community Townhall Meeting via phone conference starting at 3 p.m. Please join the meeting from your computer, tablet or smartphone at https://global.gotomeeting.com/join/144005773 or you can dial in using your phone at 1-872-240-3212. The access code is 144-005-3212 for all methods of joining the meeting.
Third, we are trying to reach out to those who may not have access to the internet. We are sending out a letter on Monday to those who names we have available. However, we know it is not a complete list, so we are including the letter in this post. Please share it with your friends, neighbors, or others who may have an interest in our endeavor. Thank you for helping with getting the word out.
Fourth, we are entering a crucial time in our fight to stop the proposed mega landfill in Cumberland County. It is anticipated our legal fees will increase and we may find it necessary to hire outside specialists to assist us in this battle. We need your donations to continue, especially since we have not been able to have any fundraisers due to COVID 19 and the “stay at home” order. It is simple to make a donation – on this website just press the “DONATE” bar where you can make a donation through PAYPAL or you can send your check to: CCLA, P.O. Box 238, Cumberland, VA 23027. Keep in mind we still have yard signs and t-shirts for sale.
FOOD FOR THOUGHT – Have you given any thought to how life would be different during this time of the pandemic if the proposed landfill was a reality? Which it will not be! Would we have fresh, clean, crisp air to breathe? Would it be peaceful and quiet or would there be large rigs traveling our roads? What about all the COVID19 contaminated trash from other states? Would it be coming to the proposed mega landfill since the pandemic has been declared a natural diseaster?
Just some food for thought. Stay safe and virus free and remember to join our Townhall Meeting next Sunday from the comfort of your home.
