Greening the Statehouse 2018

We’re so thankful to the hundreds who joined the 11th Annual Greening the Statehouse on Saturday, November 17, 2018!  We were energized by the spirit of unity among the thirty plus non-profit & green businesses there. We’re so appreciative of the esprit de corps among HEC’s Outreach (Amanda, Marianne), Program (Jesse, Tim, Kim, Indra, Paula, Sam, Bob, Jeni, & Jimmy), and Development (Sharlene, Renee, & Karl) Teams and our volunteers, whose diverse talents made #GTS2018 possible.   A special out to our own Amanda Shepherd for being our GTS Coordinator and pulling off not only our first GTS outside of Central Indiana, but one with wonderful turnout!  We’re grateful to our GTS Awardees, Keynote Speaker, and Panelists for their great contributions to sustainability. We were glad that HEC Board Members Tom Barrett, David Van Gilder, and Julie Peller could be with us.  We were thrilled by the warm backdrop of the Honeywell Center.
