Work of 1000: The Clean-up of the Nashua River
May 2, 2012 6:30-8 pm
Hollis Brookline High School Auditorium.
Free. Donations accepted. Reception to follow.
One person can make a difference. “The Work of 1000″ tells the story of Marion Stoddart, who mobilized clean-up of one of America’s most polluted rivers – for herself, for her community, and for future generations – and, in doing so, became a citizen leader honored by the United Nations. This program, a 30-minute film complemented by a personal talk with Marion herself, provides a gripping profile of an ordinary citizen who realized her power to make a difference. Civic, educational, and professional organizations are using this program to build leadership skills and give people confidence that they can make a difference in crucial social issues. Co-Sponsored by Beaver Brook Association, Hollis Social Library and HBHS Green Club.
