And the Nominees are…. 2013 Arlington Green Patriot Awards
What a humbling and thrilling experience it has been to get the announcement that I was nominated as an EcoBroker agent and Arlington Community member seeking to better the environment, both through civic and environmental action! Thank you so much to all of you who have made this possible. I love what I do and am absolutely thrilled to be a part of this wonderful Northern Virginia community, educating people about green real estate, living healthier, more sustainable lifestyles, encouraging action and participating in as many organization as possible! I was doubly tickled when I saw that my group, Eco-Op, was also nominated, and some of our members such as Yuck Old Paint were nominated as well! Combined, we have apparently dominated this wonderful award nomination, and look forward to hearing who wins on Sunday at the ceremony.
