Ankeney picnic wrap-up

The Chittenden County Democrats enjoyed a beautiful afternoon at the Ankeney farm in St. George last Saturday. Speaker Symington gave a funny, interesting, and short (!!!) speech. Peter Freyne had a nice write-up about our event.

Mike Strizki, Chief Technology Officer of Renewable Energy International, drove up from New Jersey to talk with local Dems about the technology he has developed and its ramifications for our country's energy future. His demonstration with his hydrogen-powered toys and his presentation on how he developed his H2/Solar system to power his own home gave us an insight into the possibilities for our energy future. It was certainly an eye-opener considering that all we’ve heard about H2 technology until now was that it is impractical. Mike effectively demonstrated that is indeed practical if we could only turn our focus on making it affordable through mass production.

We were excited to also see Treasurer Jeb Spaulding, Senators Jim Condos, Ginny Lyons and Hinda Miller, and Representatives Helen Head, Jim Condon, Reg Godin, Joan Lenes and Scott Orr. See more photos at Chittenden Dems Ankeney Picnic 2007 .

We are grateful for the support that Cyndi Bingham, Jean Ankeney’s daughter, and her husband, Web, have given us in putting on this annual event.

If you couldn't make it, we'd love to see you at our next event - and we'd love your help with a contribution through the People Powered Pledge program.
