Here are some PolyMet comment gatherings posted at the Mining Truth
website. If I had known earlier about the gathering tonight, I would have
attended, but I plan to attend another. Though I have a conflict with the
REI gathering, those at the 331 Club and the St. Anthony Park Public
Library fit my schedule, especially the library one (though the 331 Club
gathering sounds like more fun).

As usual, other familiar faces would be great. If someone is attending the
library gathering, which comes the night before the PolyMet public hearing
in St. Paul and would make for a great one-two prep & action package, and
could offer me a ride, that would be most appreciated.

 *PolyMet Comment Gatherings*

While it’s easy to submit your opinion of PolyMet’s mine plan to the DNR
using the Mining Truth website <http://www.miningtruth.org>, attending an
in-person gathering to learn more is definitely more fun. We’ve created a
number of these gatherings, as well as other organizations working on the
PolyMet mine. We’ve listed many below, and will update this list as more
events are added.

If you are interested in hosting an event like these to help your community
learn more about PolyMet’s proposal and how they can share their opinion
with the DNR, please email Aaron <aaron [at] friends-bwca.org> or
Cori<cori [at] friends-bwca.org>,
and we can help you with resources and an easy to follow plan. We’ll
provide information for every attendee and can help you create an engaging
and informative event.
