On Sunday, October 16, Sustainable Newton was one of ~50 organizations invited by the Ray C. Anderson Foundation to participate as Eco-Exhibitors for their RayDay Celebration at Serenbe in south Fulton County. It was an honor and privilege to be included in this annual celebration of the foundation's namesake. Sustainable Newton member Emily Griffith attended with her family and shares this first-hand account of a very amazing day.
When my family and I embarked on our journey to Serenbe, we didn’t quite know what the day had in store. As we drove through the breathtaking countryside, I began to take note of my surroundings, making sure to soak up the atmosphere. The bustling noises of the city soon transformed into birds chirping and insects trilling. Sun-dappled roads lined with forest escorted us to our destination among the pines. As we inched closer to our destination, the serene and silent parade of electric vehicles signaled that our first-ever RayDay was just around the corner.
