To the Editor:
As Oak Bluffs’s representative to the Cape Light Compact, the region’s energy efficiency program coordinator, I thank Ewell Hopkins and his Boy Scout troop for helping to distribute this year’s free compact flourescent light bulbs at the Oak Bluffs town meeting.
The bulbs are more traditional in looks and will each save $1.57 in yearly operating costs, and a small portion of their cost will go to the Ellie Fund to help fight breast cancer. Ewell continues to do a great job of connecting his scouts to various Island events and offering their energy and enthusiasm as a resource, while helping them learn about vital functions of our thriving community. Thank you Ewell Hopkins and the Boy Scouts.
