Letters to the Editor

Thanks from SPNDS alumnae

Dear Mom,

A subtle and earned recognition for your service to Swarthmore Presbyterian Nursery Day School. SPNDS gave us both a place to learn and grow…check it out….we did both.

We loved our years at SPNDS and naturally graduated on to bigger places. The teachers and community proved to be unforgettable. But, even after we graduated, you stayed. You had work to do.

During and after our time at SPNDS, altogether, you spent years volunteering alongside and leading the school’s Board, and more recently, organizing the Search Committee to help recruit and welcome the new Head of School. 

The SPNDS community is strong and will continue to provide our littlest of students a home-away-from-home to grow, learn and never forget how special SPNDS is….even now that you have graduated.

Big high five, Mom. NBL.

Hear this: 100% renewable energy is the future

To the Editor:

On Tuesday June 12, I joined hundreds of Pennsylvanians in Harrisburg for 100% Renewable Energy Advocacy Day, hosted by PennEnvironment. Our goal was to show legislators that clean energy is the future of Pennsylvania and it is the future that the people want.

Personally, I believe that 100% renewable energy is necessary because we have a responsibility to future generations to protect and treat the Earth with kindness. No longer can we view the Earth as an entity that can be extracted from, used or destroyed.

All the constituents who came to Harrisburg on June 12th had their own reasons and stories about why Pennsylvania needs to move towards 100% renewable energy and their voices were heard throughout the Capitol.

I had productive meetings with my legislators, and I would like to thank Senator Tom McGarrigle for listening to his constituents and agreeing to sign on and co-sponsor this 100% Renewable Energy bill. A lot of work remains to be done, but it is clear that Pennsylvanians want 100% renewable energy, and their legislators are willing to listen to their voices.

Deliciously ecological

To the Editor:

Continuing the reduce-reuse-recycle thoughts (from the June 15 Swarthmorean) for summer: Order an ice cream cone and skip the cup and spoon. Saving our environment doesn’t have to be hard — each baby step adds up!
