Now, I must confess, even though we have tried to give you as much contact information as possible since the Going Green event, limited space has prevented my telling you as much as we would have liked. The best thing to do is watch for the announcement of the date of next year’s event. The same things may be there with new and different additions, and there may be an entirely different group.
One thing we must tell you — we are grateful to Queen Parks and Recreation, especially the folks at Al Oerter Recreational Center, our sponsors and Fred Kress for all the hard work putting on this spectacular event every year
See you in 2011.
