Event Report

Due to the heavy downpour we didn't have as much interest in the EVs as we normally do.  
We had our usual Legislator Forum on Environnmental Issues noon-1pm which filled the room, as usual.  We were missing just one state rep and had our First Selectman (a.k.a. mayor) and many Inland Wetland / Conservation Commissioners along with Sustainable Fairfield, Fairfield Forestry Committee and PTA Green Teams.
For such a rainy day we were surprised to see pretty much a normal turn out - about 300 attended throughout the event.
