Olney rejects fracking

Olney's No fracking flyer

Olney Friends School has decided not to lease its land for fracking. Although this means walking away from hundreds of thousands of dollars, the school community believes this choice is most consistent with its testimonies and its commitment to stewardship of the land. The school has suffered financially as a result of the recession, which makes turning away the money all the more difficult. Olney has no large endowment to fall back on.  I will watch with interest as this unfolds, to see where "the ocean of Light" may be at work.
