Holiday Party Fun!

Thanks to all who came out to the annual Environmentalists Holiday Party co-hosted by the Environmental Council of Sacramento and the Sierra Club Sacramento Group on Friday, December 5th, 2015! We had a wonderful time with everyone and enjoyed the live performance by Jenn Rogar and her band! We shared unique holiday dishes and heard a few words from Sacramento City Councilmembers Jeff Harris and Eric Guerra.

Happy Holidays… and to another year of important work!
