Emerson UU Church
JustWeb2017, the Climate Change Arm of JAM, will meet on the second
Sunday, August 13, 2017, from 12-1 p.m. in the Sanctuary.
Philip Kuretski, Rhonda Plank-Richard and Tracy Watson will co-facilitate.
We will be continuing with ideas, discussions and plans
on how to make Emerson a greener presence within the local community
as well as an environmental leader in the wider world. Under discussion are
green ideas about using and publicizing cooling sealant for the Emerson parking lot,
Memorial Garden benches, relocating the Memorial Garden,
getting low-flush toilets, adding tint to the Pavillion windows to keep it
cooler without more AC, getting attic fans above the classrooms and ceiling fans
in the church, reviewing bids for solar panels, finding ways to finance going solar,
and encouraging greener commuting to church with bike racks and access
to electric charging stations.
Rhonda Plank-Richard and Barbara Moore are preparing a presentation for the congregation
about solar power. An energy efficiency assessment at Emerson is on the way.
We will have information about the progress of our community garden,
which is being nurtured by Eric Schmidt through the challenging weather.
Whether your passion is to fight climate change by community gardening,
spreading green energy use, influencing legislation, or transforming the
world one community at a time, there is room for you. Join us!
