Let's make a list!

Hey there, SEAC!

Last night, we had our final meeting of the year, featuring ice cream (including vegan options!) and nostalgia. We put together a list of things we've done this year so that we could look back on a year well done, along with putting together a list of things we want to do next year.

In order of being shouted out last night, things we did this year:

-Focus the Nation

-Plastic bag recycling program
-Chico bags

-Highway cleanups
-Do it in the Dark Month
-Vegan Thanksgiving
-President's Climate Commitment
-Coffee (the beginning)
-Town Hall meeting

-World Carnival and vegan bake sale
-Farm Bill
-Storming Annapolis
-That other polar bear splash
-Maryland Student Climate Summit
