Thank you to everyone who showed up on Tuesday night for MAPC’s 3rd annual Open House!
Visitors toured three floors of offices in MAPC’s Downtown Crossing building and met many members of the MAPC staff. Along the way, they earn raffle tickets by participated in games and activities.
Raffle prizes this year included “Baskets O’ Localness,” which were packed with local food products like Teddy Peanut Butter (Everett), marshmallow Fluff (Lynn), Taza Chocolate (Somerville), and G.H. Bent cookies (Milton). We also had framed wordles of the 101 cities and towns in the MAPC region, and a few big ticket items–a one-year membership to Hubway, Boston Ballet tickets, and an MFA gift certificate.
THE GREEN TEAM
MAPC appointed a “Green Team” charged with keeping the event as environmentally-friendly as possible.
Green Teamers coordinated this by:
- Purchasing local foods for refreshments
- Making a contribution to MassEnergy Wind Power to offset the event’s energy usage
- Printing all handouts and promotional materials on 100% post-consumer recycled paper
- Working with Suffolk University’s Campus Sustainability Program to bring food waste and compostable paper plates to Suffolk’s composting facilities
Waste not, want not!
Thank you again to all of our visitors – we all had a great time meeting you and showing off the work that MAPC does. See you again next year!
