Let’s Get Terry Moving

Terry Preston (and loving wife Alice) have helped SO many during their personal and professional pursuits. Now it’s time we return the favor. To describe Terry as an asset to our community is a massive understatement. Terry’s commitment to making Sacramento a better place to live for its residents is second to none. His genuine kindhearted nature helped him excel at his profession and the direct results of his efforts have made our city more livable and safer. Let’s break bread together, salute Terry & family and raise the funds needed to get a van capable of hauling Terry, his family and his wheelchair around!

ECOS has committed to raising $1,000.00 for this cause. Terry has been a long-time advocate for active transportation and has for many years been Chair of ECOS’s Transportation, Air Quality ad Climate Change Committee.

What: Spaghetti Feed

When: Friday, Jan. 6th 5:00-9:00pm

Where: Unitarian Universalist Society, 2425 Sierra Blvd., Sacramento 95825
