    this looks great, but I’ll be working in South Minnesota that day.
    if it’s appropriate, please let folks know about the Flint Fundraiser happening at the Nomad Pub on Sunday June 5th from 12-4pm. we’ll be funding rainwater harvesting and bulk water distribution infrastructure for my hometown. happy to give you more details.
    thank you for your consideration!
