Please join the Dallas Sierra Club for an important conversation with Susan Alvarez, Assistant Director for the City of Dallas' Office of Environmental Quality & Sustainability, as she briefs us on Dallas' Green Energy Policy and the status of the Comprehensive Environmental & Climate Action Plan.  The plans will have been presented to Dallas City Council in late November, and Ms. Alvarez will be briefing Sierra Club attendees on the recent progress, draft planning efforts, and strategies likely to be included in the plan.  Ms. Alvarez will also discuss related information and a timeline towards completion.

Dallas Sierra Club Holiday Party - Sunday, December 15

HollyhollyOK, we know that it still feels like summer, but cooler weather and the holidays are just around the corner. It is time to start getting those special events on your calendar. Our Holiday Party is an event you don't want to miss.

Our annual Holiday Party will be held at El Fenix Restaurant at 255 Casa Linda Plaza.  We'll party on Sunday, December 15 from 6:00 pm until 9:00 pm. Here is a Google map.

Club members and guests will share the holiday spirit, some great Mexican food, and the company of others at this annual event. Join us for some camaraderie, raffle prizes, and perhaps some surprise speakers, you never know. We'll celebrate some of our outstanding volunteers and have plenty of time to mingle. There's bound to be talk about issues of the day -- air, water, fracking, coal, the election, whatever strikes your green fancy. The entire menu will be available so you can order whatever you want to eat or drink, including liquid spirits. We'll provide a free round of margaritas (or the beverage of your choice). Support the Club by getting a 2020 Sierra Club Calendar or Planner (at a special price of only $12)!. Invite your family and friends.  So, come on out for a great party, low price, no clean up, and lots of like minded people. What could be better? See you there, and bring your appetite. Happy Holidays!!
