SEMG Membership Meeting Elks Lodge, 2401 E. 4th St., Royal Oak, MI (at corner of 4th St. & SB I-75 Service Drive, South of 11 Mile Rd.) Regular Sierra Club SEMG Membership meeting, 1st Thursday, monthly. This is the follow-up film made by Josh Fox's award-winning documentary feature GASLAND. The new film continues to explore the controversial method of extracting natural gas and oil known as hydraulic fracturing, or fracking. It shows both how dangerous the practice is and how pervasive the gas industry's influence on public policy has become. Tempered by Fox's trademark dark humor, the film shows how the stakes have been raised on all sides in one of the most divisive environmental issues facing our nation today. Open to the public; any interested person can attend. 6:30-7:00 Snacks, socializing 7:00-7:10 Announcements 7:10 Presentation

Raised by Angolan parents in Congo’s capital Kinshasa (when the country was known as Zaire), charismatic Los Angeles vocalist Ricardo Lemvo has honed an irresistibly grooving Afro-salsa sound, blending Congolese rumba and soukous with Cuban charanga and son. Belting out his original songs in Spanish, Portuguese, Lacumi, Kikongo and Lingala, Lemvo is a longtime favorite in Yerba Buena Gardens, where he’s delivered several incandescent performances. His latest album, 2014’s La Rumba SoYo (Cumbancha), delves more deeply into his Angolan roots, with startling beautiful arrangements of traditional songs and originals written in collaboration with Angolan artists.   https://youtu.be/1z4u6q0axtA?list=PL_C6KeCoAO6PG1vIKN0l7qppM-5QUX3Xo
