More than 30 Seward business owners, employees and community members enjoyed a beautiful sunny day at the 2015 SCCA Fall Social held on September 16th. Coastal Seafoods hosted the event in the courtyard behind their store, and served up delicious seafood sandwiches, salad and home-made chocolate chunk cookies!

Besides the opportunity to connect with friends and colleagues from the neighborhood, SCCA members heard a brief presentation about business recycling and organics collection from Hennepin County Recycling Technicians Amy Maas and Nancy Lo. The County offers grants and technical assistance for businesses and other organizations to set up workplace one-sort recycling and organics collection.

Kudos to Suzanne Weinstein, owner of Coastal Seafoods, for instituting recycling and organics collection at her business years ago. And a big thank you to Suzanne and her staff for again hosting and making the Fall Social a scrumptious, and sustainable, success!
