1. Our Garden Flag Winner was announced at around 1pm yesterday in Snow’s Garden Center. 4 year old Walker Shrum threw his hands in the air, hopped up and down and yelled “I WON I WON I WON!!!” To the right is his entry. We will be sending this design off to be produced and will soon have the flags available for the public. Stay tuned to www.cvillegogreen.com for more details.
2. We had some terrific businesses come out to share their level of ‘greenness’ with the community. LEAP (the Local Energy Alliance), The Gaines Group (Green Architects), Bridgeport Construction (Green Builders), eShield of Virginia, APM Energy (energy audits and remodels), RideShare (commuter info and opportunities) and, of course, Dixon Disposal and Snows Garden Center.
3. We had some wonderful folks keeping the kids entertained. The Kona Ice truck was serving up some wonderful snow cones (kids everywhere with blue tongues), we had SUPER FUN with Cville Inflatables. They brought a huge moonbounce. The Charlottesville Albemarle SPCA brought out five of the sweetest canines on the planet and introduced them around to the crowds.
4. We were VERY thankful to have had several members of the local media attend. Of course our media sponsors C-ville Weekly, but we also had our friends at the Newsplex show up and shoot some video and do some interviews with us and our vendors click here for video. The Daily Progress was nice enough to send a writer, Graham Moomaw, to write an article.
So we’ve decided for certain that we’ll be having the Cville Go Green Fest annually to continually increase awareness about green practices and energy saving techniques. If you’re a local business in the Charlottesville area, we’d love for you to join us next year!
