Local School Club Gets Award
Minutes 6-13 of the City Council meeting shows a portion of the Horace Mann Recycle Club getting an award, from either HP Pavilion or Allied Waste, not sure. This is an effort over the last few years at a local school, and the lengths and breadth of this program is pretty neat. Each day kids divide waste up and staff and parents work with the kids to educate other students on how to recycle. They also worked with a new waste vendor to get recycling services incorporated- and are working on composting. Very sweet & touching- and I’ve heard *a lot* about this program, as the volunteer who coordinated is my sister! “Super volunteer,” as the mayor calls her, aw.
Just a little intro- I’m a SF dweller but grew up in Cupertino and, as you can see, visit family and frequently work there as well. I guess you can call it “guest blogging”- I don’t write that frequently for SF either, but if something comes down the line that I think may be of interest, it’s nice to post directly to the site instead of goading one of my SJ friends to post it! I’m also glad to join this great group of writers. My home on the internet: banane.com.
