Just like you got them emailed from Ardy, here are the March 19 minutes and list of tasks.
Also, take a look at the draft green tidbits and comment with any changes we should make to them before they go to the Mesabi Daily News. FYI, I’ve just scheduled these five to show up on the website in the next week or two, but I can change them at any time (even after they “publish”).
Rob put together some talking points for the Home Show this week. As he emphasized last Thursday, we’re all going to have our own ways of describing what “sustainability” is and means – these are meant as ways to help make connections between our own ideas and the ideas people already have. Look through them and leave a comment with any feedback or additions to these points.
