Editor's note: CRDN Report will appear every four weeks.
Welcome to the second edition of the CRDN report which is a monthly column designed to keep you the reader aware of what is going on or what has gone on, at the Crescent City campus of College of The Redwoods.
For those that might have missed the first column let me briefly introduce myself: my name is Steven Bevier and I am one of two student senators that represent CRDN in the College of The Redwoods college district. I am also the president of the Literary Club and an active member of the A.S.B. Club.
So what has been going on lately at the campus?
On Dec. 1, the Eco Club (formerly the Natural Resources Club) hosted
an on-campus viewing and discussion of the movie "Who Killed the
Electric Car?" The movie was free to all members of the community and
refreshments were provided for those that attended the showing. Daelon
Davis, president of the Eco Club, said the turnout for the viewing was
more than organizers had hoped for with about 40 people attending all or
part of the movie.
The huge success of this first event put on by the Eco Club has the
members of the club looking forward to the upcoming spring semester,
when they can host more events. Some possible events being considered by
the Eco Club is a showing of "Revenge of The Electric Car" which is the
sequel to "Who Killed the Electric Car?" and a demonstration and
exhibiting of do-it-yourself clean energy devices. These events will be
open to the public and all are invited to attend. Stay tuned to this

through music education. We are driven by the belief that peace and
change are possible through the universal language of music."
Mellissa Williams, president of the CEC, reported a mild turnout for
the showing of the movie. The CEC intends to host viewing and
discussions of other movies in the future, as it has done in past
semesters at the college. The CEC also has other projects in the works
but none have been confirmed as of this date.
On Dec. 6 the Literary Club at CRDN held the second of its
twice-a-semester used book sale. The Literary Club puts on the used book
sale so that these books that might well have ended up in landfills or
recycled can be put into the hands of people who want them. The proceeds
go to support two scholarships that the Lit Club offers, as well as
helping to offset the cost of producing "The Kerf," which is a
nationally distributed poetry magazine that is produced right here at
On Dec. the CRDN Holiday Chorale put on a special performance at Crescent Elk Middle School.
