    Wednesday, August 5

    Are trout living in the canal? Do rare plants lurk in the shoals? Are alien invaders choking out the natives? Through a program sponsored by the National Park Foundation, Davidson Magnet School high school students have been studying the canal and its environment.

Please join us next Tuesday night (the 28th) for an informative film screening: The Wish.
There is a public health crisis impacting our country, with a disproportionate impact on African Americans, the lack of available organs for transplantation.

Did you know nearly 124,000 men, women and children in the United States need an organ transplant today? Did you know nearly 35% awaiting kidney transplants and 25% awaiting heart
transplants are African-American?

THE WISH is a faith-based story about a beloved high school teacher and her struggles while awaiting a lifesaving kidney transplant. The purpose of THE WISH is simple – to entertain the
viewing audience, inform about the need for minority organ and tissue donors, educate the viewing audience – facts vs. myths and inspire them to indicate their wish to be organ donors.

Today, it is very likely that someone in your community has been a recipient, donor or supported someone in need of an organ transplant. Unfortunately, not everyone makes it; on average 21
people die each day because the organs they need are not donated in time. Yet, a single organ donor can save up to eight lives! Together, we can be the difference but we need your help.

Come out and support us and get the facts about becoming an organ, eye and tissue donor.
