Trex Plastics Challenge
We did it again! We picked up another 109 pounds of plastic film from the Springfield Town Library and the Springfield Food Co-op  towards our goal of another 500 pounds. It was delivered to Shaw's Supermarket and on its way to Trex Company for recycling. So far, we have removed 1089 pounds of plastic from the waste system. As we start towards our goal of another 500 pounds, Union Neighborhood Park Association has signed up as a sponsor.

President Karen welcomed all to the May 16, 2023 club meeting held at the Crown Point Country Club.

For our inspirational moment, Sue Dowdell offered this quote from Jack Ma:

Never give up. Today is hard, tomorrow will be worse, but the day after tomorrow will be sunshine.


James Holmgren, Katie Mayer, and Brandon Gulnick discussed ways to reduce the stigma of mental health and substance use disorders, as part of the Leadership Recovery Community Partnership Project. Michael Johnson (not photoed) from Turning Point also offered some thoughts. 

  • Karen: today's attendance and her upcoming walk for the National Alliance for Mental Illness.
  • Sue Dowdell: Her mom is out of hospital.
  • Taylor: The Humane Society plant sale was a success.
  • Jeff: He didn't injure himself cleaning out the Family Center building. Also, reading to Elm School class.
  • Jim: Looking forward to the Outdoor Famers Market on June 1. Also, the success of the track team.
  • Sue Dana: Paul is home.
  • Carol: transitioning to the Bean Group.
  • Frank: Fun Utah skiing trip.
  • Deb: Reading to kids at Elm Hill.

Weekly raffle of $9 was won by Bob F., which was fitting since it is his birthday. The pot grows to $251.
