On Saturday, the Sharon Friends of Conservation held its annual potluck supper at the Unitarian Church of Sharon.
These Sharon businesses donated this year as well as in years past: Shaw's Supermarket, Ward's Berry Farm, Alice's Mandarin Taste Restaurant, Crescent Ridge Dairy and Ever So Humble Pies. The Sharon Fish & Game Club stepped forth with a fine turkey roast.
SFOC wishes to thank the Sharon Unitarian Church for the use of their recently and wonderfully refurbished facility. We are grateful for the herculean efforts of those members who pitched in for the supper set-up and cleanup.
The presentation by the Sustainable Sharon Coalition and First Step Energy informed attendees how to improve the energy efficiency of their homes.
They explained how to arrange for free energy audits, zero-interest loans and
improvements which can significantly reduce energy bills. One interesting fact
was that the leaks from cracks and poorly fitting doors and windows can equate to having a 4 foot by 4 foot window open in the winter.
The home-made food brought by individuals was interesting, eclectic and, judging from the barren table at the end, scrumptious. There were many more vegetarian dishes than last year. As always, the staple of the banquet was the good conversation and companionship.
