HCC 2021 Fellowship Soup Share! 
For January, February & March lets have a little soup-fun!
We welcome all HCC members and friends to submit their favorite soup or stew recipes for all of us to try. We’ll be able to make, them at home, and see what we think. Then we can vote on our favorites. At the end of the 3 months the chef that submitted the soup/stew with the most votes gets a new apron!
If you or someone you know is not part of FB, they can email Stephanie Minister (sgeorgmini@yahoo.com) and she can add the recipe.
Happy New Year! Stephanie Minister
Green Tip of the Week:
 MASS. CLIMATE BILL PASSED
Earlier this week, the Mass. State Legislature passed a very forward-looking Climate bill (SB2992) with a target of net zero carbon emissions by 2050.
Please consider writing to Governor Baker, encouraging him to sign it. Below is a Mass. Audubon link that makes sending such a letter to the Guv very easy.
“USE WISELY...” HELP US CARE FOR OUR FRAGILE ENVIRONMENT BY REDUCING WASTE.
REDUCE - REFUSE - REUSE - REPAIR - RECYCLE- ROT (COMPOST)
