This is short notice, but we just received news that we are REAP grant recipients for our upcoming solar project AND that USDA Administrator Bette Brand is coming up from DC to present it to us! So we're planning a party here at Andy's Agway, and we'd love to have you come. It will be this coming Thursday, June 13th, at 11:30. There will be people from Revision Energy here, media reps, hopefully local government officials, customers, and more...and we're working on lining up food too. We hope you'll join us for the party as we kick off our solar project!
