Please join SHAPE (Support Humanity and Protect the Environment), Communities First Sewickley Valley & 10 Actions Sewickley for a program about how this will affect our lives and what we can do: at the Edgeworth Club entitled "The Gas Industry / Petrochemical Buildout in Our Region & Pathways to Our Sustainable Future."
