How We Impacted Our Community Bethel Christian Church- The six members Enlightened the church about energy consumption. We Educated them with an electric consumption guide, a 4-H checklist, office checklist, and worked with Bluegrass Energy to do an energy audit. We Encouraged them to reduce electric use, and recycle with our suggestion sheet. We Executed by training the “Green Leader” to make sure changes are continued.
How We Impacted Our Community Lake Mingo Park- Duane McCuddy, Head of Parks and Recreation, wanted us to Enlighten him. We Educated him by giving him a green building guide for the new shelter house. The team Encouraged him with our own outdoor checklist. We Executed by doing the Lake Mingo clean- up.
How We Impacted Our Community Storm Water Drainage System- David Lafferty was Enlightened when he saw us in the Jessamine Journal. He Educated the team about dumping in Storm Drains and how it affects the wildlife. We Encouraged him when we told him we would place some storm drain stickers on for him. The team Executed in two days, placing almost one thousand stickers on the drains.
