3rd Annual Green Drinks Victoria Celebration: Building a Legacy

Community Event
Jul 14 2009 - 6:00pm to 8:00pm

Join us for the 3rd Annual Green Drinks Victoria Celebration: Building a Legacy. This is like no other Green Drinks gathering during the year - July's Green Drinks will be at Royal Roads from 6-8 pm on Tuesday, July 14th. There will be a green market place featuring local green entrepreneurs, businesses, community and environmental groups as well as great discussion and refreshment.

Use the most sustainable means of transportation you can imagine... stroll, walk, piggy-back or run, come by kayak, baby carriage, hang glider, bicycle, hybrid, bus or carpool - minimize your footprint on your way to Green Drinks.

Admission is by donation and supports the Royal Roads University - Roger Colwill Fund for the Environment. Roger Colwill was the driving force behind Green Drinks in Victoria. Roger will be remembered by many as an environmentally responsible community leader in sustainability, social justice and a variety of related capacities.

The cost of food and beverage ranges from $8-$10+ depending on what you consume. Beer and alcohol will be served at the no host bar.

For information for the green market place, volunteering and the sustainability challenge, please contact Tara at Tara.Zajac@RoyalRoads.ca . Event organizers are especially looking for volunteers to help for an hour or two between 5:30 and 8:30pm, a graphic artist to draw up a poster board for the event and a 10 x 10 ft tent.
