Wake 'Cool' County House Party, Thursday, 10/9, 7:00 - 8:30 p.m.

Come out to the first informational and strategic planning House Party for the Sierra Club’s Cool County campaign at the home of John and Sabrina Colvard, 3700 Trenton Rd., Raleigh, NC 27607.

You will have the opportunity to see the oldest brick house in Wake County (1804), which has been recently restored to be the oldest Energy Star certified house in the country.

Marvin Woll will present tips he learned as the lead volunteer in the Raleigh Cool City campaign. He has a wealth of information and we are very excited that he has volunteered to help lead our new Wake ‘Cool’ County campaign.

Afterward, we will brainstorm strategic plans for approaching the Board of Commissioners and educating the public about the Cool County project. Your perspective and voice is very important to the County’s progress.

Please RSVP to Kara Craig, NC Cool City Coordinator, Sierra Club at
