Making the scene with Greendrinks

By Lanier Laney

Congratulations to Beaufort’s Greendrinks, which celebrated its sixth successful year this past week.  Founded by Paul Nurnberg, Kim Gundler, Burton Sauls, Richard Darby, Mark Shaffer, and Michele Barker, this group holds a monthly meeting of people working in the environmental fields along with those who are simply interested in getting together with other green-minded people.  They meet every third Tuesday of the month and always have a interesting speaker on topics ranging from local solar energy to beekeeping. Their motto? “Green goes better with friends.” This week’s topic was on how to make Beaufort a year-round eco-tourism destination with speaker Robb Wells from the Beaufort Chamber of Commerce.

“We all have a good time. Join us!” said member Liz Entwistle. Go to www.greendrinks.org/SC/Beaufort to see upcoming scheduled speakers and sign up for emails.
