The SMCC Sustainability Committee is working hard to bring our community together this month virtually. While we are all doing things differently during this pandemic one thing is certain: our cause is just as important and vital for a brighter future. In order to bring awareness and understanding we will be hosting games and film discussions each Friday in October beginning October 9. Share with a friend, neighbor, and students. All are welcome to participate. Together we will make a difference!
