Welcome Back, Let’s Get At It!

Hey REthinkers! We hope winter break has left you energized and ready to create some nuggets of greenness!

Our Kickoff meeting will not be until after the Org Fair on January 30th from 5-8pm at the Kohl Center. Stay tuned for an Org Fair Volunteer Sign Up.

In the mean time there are other events and projects to get involved in:

Athletics: Our basketball team is doing amazing! One great way to see them for free is to volunteer at the games! Follow this link and bring friends! Remember you get a $10 food voucher.

American Forest and Paper Association: Are you a recycling champion (duh we all are)? The AF & PA is recognizing outstanding recycling efforts, if anyone would like to fill out an application for REthink or an individual that would be awesome. Let’s get some recognition!
