Our event was held at a local solar power distributor, Solar Source.
A highlight of the event was surprise guest speaker, Shelby, a local 4th grade student who's been working on a global warming project in school. Her speech blew us away!
We heard from Largo Mayor Patricia Gerard, who recently installed a solar water heater and a solar pool heater on her home. We also heard comments from State Senator Mike Bennett, who will work to implement net metering to promote solar energy.

What a great event! Passionate global warming enthusiasts joined forces to show congress that true leadership is needed! 1 Sky/Southern Alliance for Clean Energy, as well as Suncoast Surfrider had information booths set up to educate and guide folks as to how they can help! Everyone left with the tools they need to contact their legislators about global warming.

Ready to change the world!!
