things to do, places to go

If you're in, or around Delaware, and you have some spare time, there are a few people who would like you to consider sharing some of it with them.

Wednesday night, it's the University of Delaware hosting Spy vs. Spy: Down and Dirty in the Espionage Trenches, part of the Spies, Lies and Sneaky Guys Global Agenda lecture series at Clayton Hall, starting at 7:30. A "former major general of the Soviet KGB" and a "former chief of counterintelligence for the CIA" will share a little history, from two somewhat different perspectives.

The Delaware State Police are looking for recruits for their Citizens' Police Academy, which runs for nine weeks on Thursday nights from 6:30 to 9:30 in Georgetown, and starts on March 20th. (On the same page is information about Delaware's Medal of Honor Ceremony, to be held on March 25th.)

Delaware's Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control (DNREC) is looking for volunteers to help plant beach grass on March 22. This is the fourteenth annual one-day planting drive sponsored by the organization, aimed at protecting Delaware's coastline.

On April 3rd and 4th, Widener University School of Law and the Mid-Atlantic Environmental Law Center join together to present Environmental Citizen Suits at Thirtysomething: A Celebration & Summit. The Keynote speaker for the event is Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. Contact the school for more details concerning the cost of attending. (There is a charge for the reception Thursday night, but it's difficult to ascertain if registration is required for the presentations during the day on Friday.) CLE credits are available for Pennsylvania and Delaware attorneys, but students, alumni, and members of the public are welcome also.
