Garden Party

Garden Party Takes Zephyr Wind Project Over Halfway to Goal!

The Zephyr Wind Project Garden Party drew some 150 people to the historic home of Silas and Vicki Ford July 15 for a pleasant evening of sunshine, lake breezes, good conversation, and much-appreciated support for renewable energy and education in the Mahtomedi area. The event netted more than $15,000 toward the Zephyr Wind Project! Thank you to EVERYONE who showed their support for clean energy education in our community in this special way or through previous ZWP fundraising efforts. Contributions made today will still count toward the Garden Party fundraiser.
