"Discover with Nancy Moldenhauer and her Michigan City Sustainability Commissioners, recipients of the 'Light Award' from Solar United Neighbors Indiana, how they've been inspired to promote green in their community and thereby reduce their municipality's greenhouse gas emissions," organizers said in a press release. "Grab a delightful libation and some delicious eats at your place while you learn how their partners at Solar United Neighbors, Carbon Neutral Indiana and Soul Power have contributed to their success."

"Other projects presented may be: 'Caught You Being Green,' SolSmart Designation, Waste Reduction, Electric Vehicle Chargers, Solar Panel Fields, and Bicycling Culture," organizers said in a press release.
