Seven swans a swimming, six geese a laying,

Visit the eco action table in the rotunda at lunch Friday and check out our amazing buttons! $1 each! A great gift for friends and family.
ANOTHER Green Christmas Tip: Instead of buying “stuff” why not give the gift of time, an experience or a donation? Make a coupon book, buy tickets to an event or buy a gift of hope – like an animal or well for a charity that aids other countries. Your gift will warm someone’s heart but not the planet!
