December has been an exciting month for community outreach! In Bethany two new community partners have signed on to the program! We are happy to welcome the Farmer’s Market and Bethany Elder services to the Neighbor to Neighbor program. Together we set up a monthly tabling event and kid’s recycled craft project for the first farmer’s market of every month, this month was rudolph light bulb ornaments and potato stamp holiday cards. We are also currently planning a workshop with Elder Services to help seniors take advantage of the programs offered by Neighbor to Neighbor.
In Cheshire we celebrated the accomplishments of our community groups with an awards ceremony to congratulate our three community competition winners, and grand prize winner Friends of the Cheshire Public Library. We are also in the process of organizing an exciting new workshop that will combine the standard Home Energy Solutions workshop with a simultaneous children’s activity.
One of the more exciting events I had the change to help out with this month was the Windham Oxbow neighborhood lighting sweep. This creative event allowed us to set up in a neighborhood and do lighting visits on the spot, my team completed 6 visits in just one afternoon! Way to go team LED!
