Ride for Renewables & Harvest Fest, Sept. 26

From an announcement issued by the Midwest Renewable Energy Association:

Help raise funds to support the education programs at the Midwest Renewable Energy Association. The MREA is one of only a handful of institutions in the nation providing hands-on training for professionals and workshops for home and business owners. We help train the workforce that is installing wind and solar throughout the Midwest, and we provide the information for individuals to make renewables a part of their home or business.
