Sustainability Trivia Challenge

Green Drinks Lehigh Valley marks its first anniversary of the relaunch from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., June 13, at Fegley's Allentown Brew Works. The meeting will begin with networking to meet others interested in sustainability, followed by a program a sustainability trivia challenge.

This casual social gathering is for people from all professional and personal walks of life that are interested in creating a greener local environment and economy. A lively mixture of people from NGOs, academia, government and business are all welcome. Just say, "Are you green?" and be introduced to the people in the organic, self-organizing network. It's a great way of catching up with people and making new contacts. Everyone invites someone else along, so there’s always a different crowd making Green Drinks.

Location: 812 Hamilton St., Allentown. Teams should email in advance to the Lehigh Valley Sustainability Network president at AndreaWittchen@gmail.com For more information, call 610-730-8246 or visit lvsustain.org.
