Everybody is invited to attend Friends of Cortes Island’s Annual General Meeting on Sunday, November 23 2008, at the Gorge Hall.
From 1 to 4 pm, you will have the chance to learn about our past year’s program reports; to find out who is the recipient of the Jo Ann Green Environmental Award; to renew your membership, or become a member; to participate on Board elections and then join us for a community Tea Party.
One of FOCI’s key projects from past year was the 6th annual Sustainability Home Show, with an astounding participation of our youth with activities related to climate change education. The main theme for this event was LOCALIZE YOUR LIFE. One of the outcomes was an impressive list of ideas towards Food, Shelter, Transportation, Energy and more. A few of them are being implemented by community members.
FOCI needs your participation for keeping our community programs alive.
FOCI’s mission is : Promoting awareness and respect for Nature, and actions that reduce our footprints and build local resilience to climate change.
Please join us !
