Thisis a great idea from Oregon: “In response to the Unity in the Spirit of America service program, in support of which Sean Astin will be appearing in Washington DC on the morning of September 11, 2002, Bit of would like to announce *Project Elanor.*

“Our plan is to select a charity organization in the Portland, Oregon area that supports reading programs for children, due both to Sam’s role as the keeper of the Red Book of Westmarch and Mr. Astin’s special interest in children’s literacy, and to landscape the grounds surrounding it.”

Bit of are looking for expressions of interest in this project from local Ringers willing to help, especially with planting “Sam’s Garden.”
