Hi Team! A few team members have expressed an interest in launching on Green Up Day, so we're going to do that, as Vermontivate is sadly coming to a close!! Since it's hard to coordinate everyone's schedule, what we've decided to do is to have a rolling launch! It'll start at 8:30 am at the South Burlington Energy Prize table in front of City Hall! There we will take some pictures and then get our assignments for greening up! If that's too inhumanely early for you on a Saturday morning, just stop by the SBEP table at any time during the day and give our super SBEPer and Vermontivator Karen a high-five and take a picture at the booth!
