Thanks a ton for the downloadable schedule!  I actually knew the Kemmis family about 10 years ago and Dan is a very bright guy full of great ideas.  Hopefully I can sneak away from the family and head over there tonight!

UM's Sustainability Lecture Series continues with Deconstructing Buildings; Reconstructing Democracy
The theme of the lecture series is 'Will Work for Sustainability--Creating Jobs through Sustainable Development'.

The talk this week comes from Matt Hisel from Home Resource, who just had their grand opening this past weekend. They are also working on deconstructing buildings and reclaiming the timbers and other materials to be reused in other projects or buildings. They are currently working on a new homeWORD project deconstructing a few buildings in Anaconda. Gary Delp and Becky Douglas of Heritage Timbers will also be talking about their business Heritage Timbers. They have been at it for years and will surely provide for an interesting presentation and discussion for the sustainability talk this Wed. from 7-9 at UM's Gallagher Business Bldg (rm 122)  All welcome, and hope to see you there!
