About six months ago I contacted David Maidenberg of the Sierra Club to find out why there was no Sierra Club in Fort Wayne. I wrote to him several times and was finally able to get contact with him through Facebook.
He told me to keep trying and we would eventually get together on this.
Two months later I contacted him again and we began to make plans for a meeting.
Then to my surprise, I was informed by David that Fort Wayne's own John Steinbach sat on the Sierra Club committee and would also like to be involved.
I began school around this time and became very busy with my grandkids.
I was happy to see though, that John took the reins and he and David have put together the following event.
