Lexington Green Scene June 6, 2012
The Lexington Green Scene on Wednesday evening June 6, 2012 was exceptional for many reasons.
The venue was the patio at Nick Ryan’s Saloon on Jefferson Street in Lexington. The weather was perfect with sunny blue skies, low humidity and a slight breeze. The only aspect of the evening that topped the venue and weather was the excellent mix of guests. We enjoyed conversation with a diverse group of Kentuckians interested in sustainability issues.
In attendance were designers, engineers, facility managers, attorneys, construction executives, and building component manufacturer’s and services representatives. A total of thirty eight people dropped by for networking and wonderful Nick Ryan’s food and beverages.
A highlight of the evening was an announcement by board member Ryan Daugherty - McBrayer, McGinnis, Leslie & Kirkland, PLLC. She informed us that Chris Head has accepted the position of Acting Executive Director of our chapter.
Then Chris discussed upcoming events including the Louisville Green Scene on June 27th, Project Tour at Kosair Children’s Medical Clinic on July 11th, LEED UP Louisville on July 25th Project Tour at Locust Trace in August and the Lexington Green Scene at Natasha’s on September 5th. He concluded with a comment about the focus of the Chapter in the future on our Green Schools initiative, and his commitment to his new Executive Director role. We all welcomed Chris with a round of applause.
