Seasons change, leaves die and the nights grow longer, but the need is always present for committed souls to support charitable endeavors and participate in local government. Start with a fundraising dinner for the University of Utah’s Women’s Resource Center. The following evening, celebrate the Legal Aid Society’s battles against domestic violence. Later in the weekend, you won’t want to miss an important city open house on planned sites for bicycle safety lanes in the city.
