You are invited to:
Green ProAction Cafe #3

6:30 to 9 p.m. Thursday, August 27,
at Thatcher Pavilion, 8030 Chicago Ave., River Forest

There is something energizing about gathering together with a large group of people that care about the same things you do. Join with others that care about the earth and our community as we celebrate local, green accomplishments and the dedicated folks that worked to make them happen. This is an opportunity to meet new people, learn about creative initiatives and contribute ideas. 

We’ll start at 6:30 p.m. with a snack supper and conversation, share stories of victories large and small, and learn what’s next. You’ll also have time to mill around and explore the particular initiatives that catch your attention.
Please come and bring a friend. All are welcome!
