There has been so much going on in my busy little social life lately!  I wanted to share some updates on what has been going on as well as promo a few events coming up. mK – here we go!

What a fun event!  It was great meeting so many people and getting a little time brush up on my ice skating skills as well!

Electronics Scrap Collection in Milwaukee

This event was very successful, collecting over 236,000 lbs. of electronic waste.  Did you miss the event?  Here are a couple of resources:

Lake Country Community Fest

Lake Country Community Fest was wonderful!  It was so much fun to take so many pictures with everyone.  It seemed like we talked to a million  people and answered a lot of questions.  We also gave away over 100 blue bins for curbside recycling.  Did you miss us?  There are a lot of local events coming up where you can get a blue curbside bin for free if you are in our program.

Earth Hour

Did you participate?  I beat the hubby in backgammon & scrabble.  Now that’s what I call time well spent!  For some fabulous pictures on how some major cities and monuments looked, click on the picture below.
