The Friends of Jerry’s Pond are celebrating their 7th Earth Day and you are all invited. There will be music, Bangladeshi dance, food, arts & crafts, Native American Fish Weir, and many activities for both kids and adults. Meet your neighbors to celebrate the planned reopening of Jerry’s Pond, and meet members of the IQHQ team and community groups.
