introduction of FHS students

they came to a relevant meeting

if they notice on the wall, there is a plaque recognizes the Town as a Green Community
solar farm is a unique project provides the electricity for 90% of our town buildings
it is performing at over 11 megawatts

plastic bag ban, Feb 12 will be approved (hopefully)
what is next? 
community gardens are around, coming to these meetings the future is all of you
if you can't vote today, you will and you can still advocate for things

FHS solar panels were built to hold it, but didn't make it
we have had proposals for Horace Mann and FHS
maybe get a future solar car port for the parking lot
you can see a difference being made

don't be shy about letting us know

FHS is a green high school, because we went green, we got an additional $2M
they weren't giving the solar panels in those days, it would have required for purchase, we did make sure that the facility was capable to get it

concerns about personnel issues with certain town departments
refrain from comments on Town personnel, could expose us on legal issues
follow the process, direction to proper channels, i.e. through management and Jamie
we need to use good judgment
