    NSN General Meeting this Sunday!  The NSN is having a general membership meeting this Sunday, May 24, 3:30 pm, in the breezeway outside Native Roots Market, 132 W Main St.  Refreshments will be provided.

    They will talk about current and future NSN projects, elect new officers from the steering committee, and discuss and vote on revisions to their by-laws. This Sunday will be the best opportunity to become more involved with NSN or learn more about where they are going as an organization.
