When toxins were found in the water by Badger Army Ammunition Plant, Alice Hawley and others distributed flyers to warn the neighbors.  Alice said that volunteering is important to her because of the dangers of pollution left behind by the Plant.  She added that she’s working to educate others about saving not only the neighborhood, but also our state.
