I don't know how many people are on the MAR-L email list and saw this already. If so, please forgive duplication. For those of us not observing Rosh Hashana it sounds like a wonderful celebration.

>On  Friday, September 30 there will be an extraordinary event at Arrow Lake,  only one hour north of Manhattan.  A delegation of 10 Native American leaders from the Lummi Nation in the Pacific Northwest will arrive to thank the volunteers and supporters who made the preservation of 462 acres of land possible and helped raise over $6 million dollars.
> 
>Music, hiking, boating and picnicking will be part of the day and a brief ceremony at 1:00 pm.  Hikes, picnicking and boating start at 11 am.
> 
>Jewell James,  a descendant of Chief Seattle,  will lead the delegation and bring to the event a beautiful totem pole which has travelled across the United States, stopping at major Native American communities for blessings.  This pole will then continue to Washington D.C. for permanent installation at the National Library of Medicine.
> 
>The recently protected lands at Arrow Lake have been added to Sterling Forest State Park.  The
remaining 75 acres is privately owned by Arrow Park, Inc.  With the cooperation of Arrow’s Board and members, it has been the site of special programs by the New York City Fire Department and the site of an annual camp sponsored by Calvary Hospital for children who have suffered a traumatic death in their families. 
> 
>Arrow has also been used for professional training programs on the topics of bereavement, helping children grieve, suicide prevention and the military and post traumatic stress.  The beauty of the landscape and the importance of this vital work has made Arrow Park a unique conservation project.
