The Community Climate Action Summit is tomorrow and we’re getting excited! The first session will begin promptly at 10:30am, so we ask that you arrive early to check-in. There will be coffee and refreshments, so if you arrive early it will give you plenty of time to check-in and grab your morning treats before the program starts.
