Happy April to all! Hope that everyone is enjoying the spring weather, a great time of year to live in Tucson! At our March meeting, we were pleased to welcome TEP to discuss the available utility rebates being offered by TEP’s new program. I hope everyone took away something useful from the presentation. We had a total of 38 people attend the meeting at Feast. We received 32 evaluation forms with a total point average of 94.2 out of 100. We appreciate receiving the evaluation forms as this helps in selecting future topics and speakers so please keep giving us the feedback good, bad, or indifferent. Additionally, if you have any recommendations for presentation topics and speakers please feel free to let me know- my email address is email@example.com.
