Binghamton River Trail Programming Committee looking for Volunteers!
The Binghamton River Trail Programming Committee works to promote events
on the trails and also to help execute the River Crawls. They do not
have many members and are looking for some additional members who will
roll up their sleeves and help with the Crawls. People who are
interested can contact Judi Hess (judi at visitbinghamton.org) or Mary
Ellen Mauro (memauro at cityofbinghamton.com) for additional information.
The Committee meets once a month from Feb - Oct. The meetings are
normally only 1 hour long, but additional time would be needed to help
with the Crawls.

Weekly Binghamton Peace & Justice Vigil
This is our tenth year standing for peace on Monday of every week in
front of the Federal Building on Henry Street in downtown Binghamton.
If you haven't been with us for a while, or if you have never joined
us, now would be a great time to come stand with us. You can join for
the whole hour or for just a few minutes. We have a number of nice
clear new signs proclaiming the goals of the World March for Peace and
Nonviolence, as well as a bright colorful World March Banner, in
addition to the wide range of signs we've been bringing for years - or
you can always bring your own sign.
