WELCOME!

Thanks for coming out to our first meeting last Monday! We had a fabulous turnout. Hope y’all had fun this past week, visiting various campaign meetings and checking out what you might want to get involved with this year. As a reminder, we’ll be having another meeting this coming Monday for Big Seac, 8:30 in McGlothlin 20.

Also, we have two campaigns that have not yet met – Energy, which will meet at 7:00 pm on Sunday in the SEAC office, and Surry, which will meet on Monday at 7:00 in the SEAC office (I always enjoy making Mondays a SEAC extravaganza by going to Surry and then Big SEAC – who wants to do homework on a Monday, anyway? ;) If you don’t recall, the Energy campaign has some great projects including instituting an Office of Sustainability on campus, and Surry is working with community members in Surry, environmental organizers, and Williamsburg City Council to deal with the proposed coal-fired power plant across the river. So, if you haven’t been able to make it to a campaign meeting yet, you can get in on the action tomorrow and Monday!

Our Recycling, Biodiversity and the brand-new Gardens/Food Potentiality campaign met last week, and have some great ideas in the works for the coming semester! If you missed those meetings, they’ll be reconvening this week as well. Don’t hesitate to come out and get involved with protecting the College Woods, improving recycling knowledge and practice on campus, and growing some sweet gardens. At last report, the meeting times for these campaigns were: Biodiversity on TUESDAYS at 6:00 PM – this is a change from what was announced last week, Recycling on Tuesdays at 9:00 PM, and Gardens on Wednesdays at 6:30 PM.

Meeting times are subject to change at this point in the year, so if you can’t make those listed above, contact someone from the campaign. We want you!

Hope to see y’all on Monday. In the meantime, check out this awesome turbine
