Center for the Environment’s First EnviroMingle© Draws Green-minded Crowd

Mothers who have a keen interest in buying local produce for their families talked to bankers who know that dirty air has economic implications. Doctors who treat people with respiratory diseases talked to business people who are working to make their companies energy-efficient.

“Green-minded” people gathered yesterday evening at the Blue Vine in downtown Salisbury for the first EnviroMingle© hosted by the Center for the Environment at Catawba College.

“We wanted to bring together all the people who have worked as volunteers, who have given their time and money to support the Center’s activities,” said Executive Director John Wear. “We also wanted to bring together those who might want to learn more about our work.

“People shared their ideas with us and learned more about the Center,” Wear said. “And I think everybody had a really good time getting to know others who share common values.”

The Center will host additional EnviroMingles© in the future, check back often for updates.
