Hey Everyone.please read on!
Below are activities coming up next week for the American Solar Energy
Society at UF (ASES) and generally interested people :-) I hope you can
come check some of the stuff out and we could also use some help - Monday
night we will be tabling (and showing off the ASES trike) for an hour before
and after the keynotes addresses of Lovins and Willard, Tuesday just come
and partake in the learning and discussion with two amazing people, and then
Thursday we will be tabling again to especially recruit some active members
for this year and raise awareness. We will have the ASES Solar Trike (under
construction but operable) out and I believe people will be greatly
interested! Then to top it all off we will have our kickoff get-together
Thursday evening at 6:30pm. Get details below and call me if you want!
