Energy efficiency and Havurah. Be there. Bring work gloves!

Havurah House sketchWe have a unique opportunity to partner with the Middlebury Friends Meeting (Quakers) to remove some accumulated trash from the Havurah basement and insulate the basement walls, which are a major contributor to heat loss. The Quakers are long time renters at Havurah for their Sunday morning services. They have some expert carpenters and rehabbers among them who have volunteered their time to help make Havurah more energy efficient, for the mutual benefit of ourselves and our planet.

The first step is to clean out the basement to clear the way for the insulating project.

The Quakers will be here with 2 trailers and a half dozen of their members on 9/29 starting at 12:30.

Here’s the catch. We need to match their contribution. A half dozen Havurah members plus a half dozen Quakers will make quick work of this project, build community and reduce our carbon footprint.

Please join the team. No experience necessary. Dirty clothes and a pair of work gloves helpful.

If you can help for the duration or just part of this time on Sunday 9/29, please email David Girard (
