Ground Breaking at 30 Island Street in Bellows Falls Vermont

November 2012 Newsletter

Great News from Green Island!

After months of hard work the Sustainable Valley Group board has secured funding to renovate 30 Island Street in Bellows Falls Vermont.  To celebrate the beginning of this project SVG had a Ground Breaking Event on October 13, 2012. 
We had a good turn out with about 35 people in attendance at the train station to hear our guest speakers; Matt Trieber, Dave Bonta, Steve Geller and Senator Vince Illuzzi.
After enjoying a light lunch donated by PK’s the group headed over to 30 Island Street to celebrate the ground breaking.  It was a beautiful day with much enthusiasm by all in attendance.
Thanks to all who helped make this event a success!

Thanks to Dave Bonta

We are sad to announce Dave’s resignation from the SVG board.  Dave Bonta, one of the founding members, and President of SVG when it moved from Springfield Vermont to Bellows Falls Vermont, remains an active member of SVG.  Dave has changed his role from SVG organizational development as a Board Member, to business development as an entrepreneur and mentor to other small business start-ups.  A self-proclaimed serial entrepreneur with a track record of success in Renewable Energy, Dave’s first start-up in this role is RReal Warm, which will be one of the anchor tenants in SVG’s 30 Island St. Incubator facility.  
We would like to take this opportunity to welcome new SVG board President Anne Morton.  Anne brings a passion and dedication to spreading the message, getting the word out about the good news from Green Island – and is personally responsible for improving the Tri-fold brochure, developing SVG web presence, creating a newsletter system, and getting the newsletters written and sent out monthly.
