Hang Out in July: Environmentalists and Progressives

Sometimes it’s nice to relax with other progressive-minded folks.  Not a meeting, no agenda, just talk and visit.  If this sounds appealing, there are two  opportunities coming up in July.

First is the “Prairie Group Happy Hour” at Destihl on Thursday, July 12,  5:30 pm to 7:30 pm.  It’s sponsored by the Prairie Group of the Sierra Club.  Here’s the invite:  “Kick back & relax with fellow environmentalists at the next Prairie Group Happy Hour! This time around we’ll try the 2nd Thursday of each month, starting in July. Stop by anytime between 5:30-7:30pm on July 12th to join us. ”  For more information, see the Facebook event.

Second is the Progressive Drop-In, sponsored by CUP and Bend the Arc: CU.  We just had the sixth Progressive Drop-In at Jupiter’s where about 12 people stopped by for conversation and connection.  The next Drop-In is set for Monday, July 16, 11:30 am – 1:30 pm at the Esquire Lounge, 106 N. Walnut, in downtown Champaign. Drop-Ins are held 1-2 times a month, some around noon and some around 5 o’clock.  We vary the day and place to acccomodate different schedules.  If you’d like to be on the invite list for an email reminder a few days before each event, send an email to:  cup61820@gmail.com.  Click here for background on Progressive Drop-Ins. 

See you in July!
