HEET has about 20 people signed up so far for this weatherization  
barnraising on an emergency family shelter at the Cambridge YWCA but  
they could use 20 or 30 more.  A weatherization barnraising is not  
only an opportunity to learn energy skills but also a good time and a  
party.  Helping to reduce the energy costs for an emergency shelter  
will be of real benefit to many people in great need.  If you can  
spare some time, please come by and help.
