If you would like to extend your congratulations to Eric, come to Earth Day Omaha this Saturday! You’ll find him at Nebraskans for Solar’s table–or Omaha Biofuels Coop’s table “next door” or the Papio-Missouri Natural Resources District’s table nearby. Two more places to look for him: Green Omaha Coalition’s and Mode Shift Omaha’s tables. His twin brother, Scott Williams, will also be at several tables, including one sponsored by Creighton University, where he is the Assistant Director of the Energy Science Program. You’ll have the opportunity to thank both of them for their outstanding leadership and hard work in our community.
