The Sierra Club is scheduled to sponsor an event Monday, March 17th, to welcome newcomers and introduce the club to interested persons who are not yet members.

The event is scheduled to begin at 7:45 p.m. in the Burton Chace Park Community Room, 13650 Mindanao Way, Marina del Rey.

Joe Young, chair of the local Airport-Marina group, said the event is aimed at introducing the club to “persons who like outdoor activities such as hiking, biking and birding, as well as to those who prefer photography, whale watching, adventure travel and a host of environmental issues.”

The event, which is free and open to the public, will feature refreshments, exhibits, a drawing and gifts, as well as informative table displays by several different club entities. A representative of the group will give a short talk explaining the club’s interest and will answer questions.

Discounted newcomer memberships will be available on the spot.

Information, Joe Young, (310) 822-9676, or Donna Specht, membership co-chair of the Angeles chapter, (714) 963-6345.
