Event Log


FInally!  I managed to present my Kudos Cards!  (I had to keep postponing that date because I was having printer probems.)  I enlarged the cards to 8 1/2 X 11 inches.  Each card read as follows:

I was passing by and couldn't help but notice that you ...

have served on the Borough of Watchung Green Team.  As a member of the Green Team,

you have reviewed and recommended eco-friendly, cost-efficient projects designed to

improve municipal operations,  You ahv eworked to conserve energy and reduce the

community's carbon footprint and natural resource consumption.

I presented a Kudos Card for each of the 6 members of the Watchung Green Team (even though I can get credit for ony 5) at Watchung Borough Hall (shown below) this morning.

While there, I also submitted my application to volunteer to serve on the Green Team.  The application will go to Mayor Pote.
