I've got to thank some great people for the fantastic success of HREG's
Houston Renewable Energy Tour on Saturday. More about the tour success
in a future e-mail. This one is about the people that made it possible.
HREG volunteers at various houses included Ed Wanat, David Jarvis,
Richard Lund, Dave Hanson, George B, Thea Luong, John Miggins, Mark
Robinson, Adam Ewert, Allen Ewert, LaVerne Williams and Chris Boyer.
Richard, Mark and Ed were also a big help with folding and delivering
programs and bulbs.
Kathleen Carrier also had lots of her friends help at the houses - John
D., Kitten, Christine, John W., Katherine, Michael S., Tommy S., Chris
F., Sandra G., Roger M., Abbey E., Lynne S., Steve C., Kathleen,
please let them know how much our group appreciated their help.
Green Mountain also sent associates to several of the houses. Jada,
will you pass along my thanks to them please?
(I hope I didn't miss anyone)
HREG Member homeowners - Carrier, Gardner & McPhail, Vanwoerden (Animal
and the generous owners of the other great houses - Orchid house,
Marrakech house, ICF house, Tyler, and Toles.
And architects, builders and designers who helped - LaVerne Williams,
Robert Morris, Michael Strong and Kathleen Carrier.
Kathleen Carrier deserves special thanks for all the hard work she put
into this tour! Publicizing, posters and programs, getting sponsors,
houses and volunteers, etc., etc, etc.
Mark Robinson also deserves a big hand for his great help with
publicity, programs, coordinating with ASES and printing, etc., etc., etc.
Chris Boyer again did a great job organizing our picnic and solar fair
and speaking at the program. I'm glad so many could make it to Hockley
