Sustainability Films at the Athena
The fall film series on sustainability has begun at the Athena Theater. See the poster at the Fellowship for coming films, on Wednesdays. Featured Sept 21 were a lengthy film on forest destruction in Cambodia and forest restoration in Trinidad. Of local interest was the returning of SE Ohio to forest. The late Ora Anderson narrated the story of the Wayne National Forest founded during FDR’s New Deal in the 1930s. The next film, on October 5, also deals with SE Ohio–Cheshire and the Gavin power plant on the Ohio River in Gallia County.

CROP Hunger Walks help to support the overall ministry of Church World Service, especially grassroots development efforts around the world. In addition, each local CROP Hunger Walk can choose to return up to 25 percent of the funds it raises to hunger-fighting programs in its own community. CROP Hunger Walks help to provide food and water, as well as resources that empower people to meet their own needs. From seeds and tools to wells and water systems, the key is people working together to identify their own development priorities, their strengths and their needs – something CWS has learned through 70 years of working in partnership around the world. https://www.crophungerwalk.org/athensoh
