Dear Friend of the St. Lawrence River,
Jim Magnes
Save The River
invites you to its
River Remembrance Day 2015
Non-Gala
Saturday evening, the seventh of November there will be no dinner, no dancing,
no big-name entertainment.

Instead, we invite you to enjoy a quiet evening at home,
wherever that may be this time of year,
reflecting on the natural beauty of the St. Lawrence River, and
we offer you the opportunity to join us in a River Illumination Ceremony.

Light a candle on your dock, deck, lawn, or living room
at nine p.m.
to show your love for the River
and your solidarity with all of us who love it too.

History
The illumination ceremony is a river tradition first practiced around the turn of the nineteenth century, again on River Appreciation Day in the 70’s, and as recently as 2013. As Save The River closes another year of vigorous advocacy on behalf of the St. Lawrence River, we invite you to join us in a celebration of the spirit of the River. The point is to remind us that we are not alone, and that if we act as a group we can protect the place we love. We’re here because of the unique way the River touches each one of us. We are joined together by a desire to preserve it so future generations can experience that magic for themselves. Let’s celebrate that magic together wherever we are on November 7th.

Click Here for a reply and donation card. We will post your thoughts about the River on our website and on our Facebook page.

Your tax deductible donation will go directly towards saving the River.


We thank you for your help.


Never doubt that a group of
thoughtful, committed people can
change the world, indeed, it is the

only thing that ever has.”

Margaret Mead

SAFETY FIRST!
If you leave your candles unattended please place them in a stable glass jar with sand in the bottom.
