Volunteers In Action

The end of the year is approaching fast! You are probably not aware of the work that goes on behind the scenes to make the Bartram Group the active group that we are. Take the time to thank the people who have served this past year, and more than likely for many years, as your officers and ExCom. They are listed on page 3 of the bulletin. And while you're at it, find out how you can help next year. Just ask!

We need your help to keep our group "alive and well."

The Green Spot:
New Appliances

• When shopping for a new appliance, consider lifetime operation costs as well as the up-front purchase price. Refrigerators last an average of 12 years, clothes washers about 11, and dishwashers about 10.

Check the Energy Guide label for the appliance's estimated yearly operating cost, and look for ENERGY STAR units, which usually exceed minimum federal standards for efficiency and quality.
