Join The Rockfall Foundation for our first Green Drinks of 2019!  Maria Madsen Holzberg will be joining Perk on Main owner, Katie Hughes-Nelson, to talk about single use plastic bags. Locally, the Middletown Garden Club is supporting an ordinance to ban the use of plastic bags and Maria will update us on the initiative and how we can help support it. The effort to encourage the use of consumers’ own bags by reducing or eliminating plastic bags is an initiative of Zone II of the Garden Club of America.  Katie will also talk about Perk’s mission to be an environmentally sustainable business.

Maria is an attorney, a past Mayor of the City of Middletown, the past president of the Middletown Garden Club and is currently the Club’s National Affairs Legislation Delegate and a member of its conservation committee.
Join us for socializing and to hear the guest speakers, January 17th, 5:30 – 7:30 p.m.
