A community dinner and discussion about our regional energy future, which will include representatives from Morris’ sister city of Saerbeck, Germany, will be hosted by the Morris Model Team starting 5:30 p.m. tonight at the Old Number 1 Southside in Morris. Members of the team will present and discuss the Morris Model Strategic Plan with community energy goals. Architects of Saerbeck’s energy transformation, including the Mayor, will share their story.

Morris City Manager Blaine Hill told KMRS that the free dinner will start at 6, with lots of food. No reservations are needed. Presentations should run between an hour and an hour and a half and will get interested community members up to speed on Morris’ sustainability efforts.

The evening will include an Electric Vehicle showcase outside Old #1 at 5:30 p.m. and those with EVs are invited to drive it to the event.
