General Meetings

Lanny Sinkin, Executive Director of Solar San Antonio, will give an update on progress made in solar energy, particularly new programs soon to be available for distributed solar energy.

Tuesday, December 9th: Holiday Party Features Special Venue, Music, and Silent Auction

Come celebrate the Alamo Group's very successful year at our annual Holiday Party and Potluck Dinner on Tuesday, December 9th from 7 to 9 p.m.. This special event will be held at Dorćol Distilling Company, 1902 S Flores St (south of Cevallos, at the railroad crossing). Dorćol‘s unique elixirs will be available—made with traditional apricot brandy or non-alcoholic.

There will be a tour of the distillery at 7 p.m. Our party will feature a variety of music and great food (potluck dishes welcome) our members are known for. As in years past, there will be a silent auction of unique gifts and certificates donated by members, local businesses and craftspeople. Auction items will be posted on our website's Events page shortly before the event so you can bid on them via email in case you can't make it to the party.

There will be a $10 cover fee at the door. All proceeds go to promote our worthwhile cause. There is free parking on the streets and the public is welcome. Please contact Margaret Day if you have any questions, would like to help, or wish to donate to our auction.

Please check the website soon for updates about this event, particularly for the auction items! This is an important fundraiser for Alamo Group. Net proceeds from the 2013 party and auction were nearly $2,300.

Throwaway batteries

Bring Your Used Batteries to the Meeting

Don’t throw those small batteries in the trash bin where they will end up in our landfills. Bring them to the monthly general meetings where we will have a container for you to place them in. Thanks to Gay Wright for coordinating this recycling effort.
