Culver’s Green Life club had its first organizational meeting of the 2017-18 school year this past week.  More than 50 students made it to the 7:45 am meeting, notwithstanding the fact a regimental sleep-in had been declared the night before! That’s dedication!  With more than 200 students expressing interest in Green Life, the club is poised to hit the ground running in 2017-18.

The full club meets the first Tuesday of every month at 7:45 am in Roberts Auditorium. Club leaders for 2017-18 are Adam Davis ’18 and George Cruikshank ’18, co-presidents, and Molly Kubaszyk ’18, communications.

The club also has two working committees, one focusing  on education and outreach and the second focusing on projects.  The education/outreach committee is led by Helen Johnston ’18 and Nora Kline ’19.  This committee will meet on the 2nd Tuesday of each month for breakfast in the Dining Hall.  This committee will focus on providing information to the community on sustainability and the Green Life!  If you have an idea for films, speakers, or other outreach activities, this is the group for you.

The projects/outings committee will meet on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at 6:30pm in the Dining Hall mezzanine.  This committee is led by Goldie Blackson ’18 and Henry Stewart ’19.  This group will work on setting up specific projects for the community, including volunteer trips to the Recycle Depot, trail maintenance and cleanup, camping trips and other outings.

Very excited about the club and its prospects for the upcoming year!
