A few words on last month's Halifax Green Drinks:
The February 22nd Coastal themed Green Drinks played homage to our diverse
and beautiful coastline. The idea was still the same, providing a space for
informal networking and social time, but with a salty twist. A number of
coastal experts were among the crowd of 30 of so at the Nail and Kneecap. A
special thanks to Sean Weseloh McKeane (Coastal Coordinator - Ecology Action
Centre) for helping to pull this event together.
Plus a REMINDER to vote in the MEC Board of Directors election if you
haven't done so already (www.mec.ca). Karen Miner is a candidate (Green
Drinks co-coordinator). Election ends on April 7, 2006.
