VLP Advocates Honored. Congratulations to VLP Advocates Lindsay St. John and Jenny Dent, who will be honored at the VLP Annual Awards Luncheon on November 15. Lindsay St. John will receive the 2005 Outstanding Law Student Award for the extraordinary contributions she has made toward making legal services available to persons who could not otherwise afford them. Jenny Dent will receive the 2005 Student Leadership Award for the outstanding contributions she has made as a Student Coordinator in the VLP Advocates program. In addition, the nearly 120 law students who served as VLP Advocates this year have been invited to attend the luncheon as guests of the VLP in appreciation of their contributions over the past year.

NOVEMBER COMMUNITY SERVICE BOARD PROJECT. The Community Service Board invites students, faculty and staff to come spend a morning at beautiful Sabino Canyon or by the Catalina Highway, recently designated a National Scenic Byway. We will be helping the U.S. Forest Service to remove invasive plants such as buffelgrass, which threaten Sonoran Desert plant species. Buffelgrass kills native plants by competing for water and space, and by providing fuel for wildfires. Training and equipment will be provided; supervised children are welcome. The project takes place on Saturday, November 19, 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 Noon. If you would like to join us, please sign up on the sheet posted in the lobby or e-mail Martha Fenn at fenn@law.arizona.edu.
