RE: [hreg] Earth Day
- Hey Charlie! As you know, this is one of the biggest event for HREG and the members look forward to it every year. However, I do feel that the event became a little commercial and profit directed. This was my thought as of last year, even though we did have some positive impact in our objectives. The idea of taking the event back to basic sounds great to me and as always HREG is ready to do its part in making the event a success. Let all concerned know that HREG is ready willing and able to continue participating in the event. Right HREG?All comments welcome.Incidentally, Charlie, we are still not sure of the winners of last year's event. Any word?Oral LaFleur-----Original Message-----Hello HREGers,

Subject: [hreg] Earth Day
I just had a call from Sarah Doss at the Citizen's Environmental Coalition asking about Earth Day. As you know, Enron and KRBE were the prime underwriters of this event and Enron is - shall we say - otherwise occupied this year and probably will not participate. But Sarah tells me that the CEC has been getting more and more concerned about the whole event becoming too commercial and basically just a big music festival with not enough emphasis on the environment. They want to reorganize it on a smaller scale, probably still with music but from local groups, and get back to basics. And they want to know if we would like to participate?
I said we always have in the past and shared their reservations about it being too big and glitzy and would like to see it smaller and more in the true spirit of Earth Day. I said I felt sure we would continue to participate but that I would check with the rest of the HREG group and get back as soon as possible (it's only about 4 moths away!) so please give me some feedback on this.

Im sure we will have many opportunities and I dont want to accept more than we can handle. Please let me know if you would like to staff the specific request below or if you would like to sign up tentatively to staff another Earth Day event. Most will be on Saturdays in April. Please e-mail me at mewert@.... Thank you.-----Original Message-----

Subject: Bellaire Earth DayMr. Ewert,I'm writing to ask the Houston Renewable Energy Group to participate in Bellaire's Earth Day Festival on April 22nd, 2006. We'd like you to have an informative booth at the Nature Discovery Center site, from 10am to 2pm. We're asking the exhibitors this year to make the booths as interactive as possible, but information would be okay, as well. We look forward to having your organization join us.Thank you,Eric DuranStaff NaturalistNature Discovery Center713-667-6550
