I believe in Ecofest, because I believe in our community. I can’t complain unless I am willing to be a part of the solution. Ecofest is an non political, fun and educational organization that helps all, not just part of our community.
Each action we complete every day has a positive or negative reaction from others. I want my actions to be always viewed as positive.
I want to give back and make my community the best it can be.
