This week, you can donate that iPod you stopped using when you decided to finance your new iPhone 6 to help people with Alzheimer's disease. Then drop in on the Utah Department of Water Resources board meeting, where millions of dollars in water projects are being discussed, including refurbishing an old dam in the Uintah Mountains. You can also attend the Salt Lake City Main Library's Holiday Celebration and pick up some new reads at the book sale.
