We've been doing a lot of outreach around Safety and Preparedness and hearing from you about many things that would help the East Side be safer. See below for resources to be more in balance and activated. Also We're looking for the action takers - if you are taking this moment to make your business or building safer, tell us about it. Then on Thursday we kick off a whole new focus on members and how small businesses can save money on their energy bill and taking advantage of renewable energy - it's a Small Business Solar Townhall. And there maybe a solar mower in the future of your lawn - I can't believe it feels like time to consider even mowing. Join us so you can say you were there when it was revealed that the sun is truly for everyone.
